Joseph Cook was a popular Inverness speaker who collected photographs on many subjects to illustrate his talks. In this audio extract, taken from a recorded slide show, the Reverend Derek Henderson of Inverness discusses one of Mr. Cook's images.

'At the bottom of Bridge Street, on the right hand side, we have a house called Queen Mary's House. Queen Mary stayed there for one night in 1562. And the reason she stayed there - this, by the way, for those who do not know Inverness, is on the site approximately where Littlewoods Store is today and the Highlands and Islands Development Board, at the bottom of Bridge Street - the reason she stayed there was, that the Earl of Huntly who was governor of Inverness and Lord Lieutenant at that time, his deputy Andrew Gordon refused his queen permission to enter her own castle. But later that year Queen Mary's forces took the castle and Andrew Gordon's neck got a little bit longer'
