Eastgate Extension & Falcon Square

The Eastgate extension was completed in 2003. It included a bridge link to the other side of the road and a covered linkage with the Safeway supermarket.

The listed building where Laura Ashley and Pizza Express are currently housed (to the left of the image) originally formed part of the Falcon Foundry at Inverness railway station. The building was dismantled stone by stone and rebuilt in its current position. The concourse outside the new Eastgate extension, Falcon Square, was named after John Falconer, the founder of Falcon Foundry.

The monument on the left is Inverness's new mercat cross. Designed by the artist and sculptor Gerald Laing, it is a sandstone pillar, thirty seven feet high, adorned with a unicorn and various birds which are cast in bronze.
