Dunbar's Hospital, Church Street, Inverness

The crow-stepped gable and ornate dormer windows of Dunbar's Hospital are seen here. Originally built as an alms house, the hospital was bequeathed to the town in 1668 by Provost Alexander Dunbar. He is said to have used materials from the demolished Citadel, a fort built in 1652-8 during Cromwell's administration. The hospital was also used as a Grammar School before the Royal Academy was completed in 1792.
