Architectural Audit of Inverness: 2-4 Eastgate & Market Brae Steps, High Street, South Side

The Market Steps were previously called the Post Office Steps until the Queensgate General Post Office was built in 1890. In the early 19th century the Fish Market was held at the foot of these steps.

The posts on the steps contain embossed images of castles, a heraldic symbol of Inverness. The steps lead up to the crown region of Inverness. At the time of writing (2010) the buildings to the left of the steps are occupied by the Bank of Scotland.
