Exterior of Station Hotel from Academy Street, c1910

Exterior of Station Hotel from Academy Street. On the left is the entrance to the station and the main entrance to the hotel is actually an extension, built on the site of the former south wing of the station facade. In the early days of World War I, two German spies were discovered and arrested in the hotel.

The Inverness & Nairn Railway first opened a station in Inverness on 7 November 1855 and it developed to become the railway centre of the Highlands with routes radiating south to Perth and beyond; east to Aberdeen, west to Kyle of Lochalsh and north to Wick. It is still open.
