Inverness in 1893

Inverness lies at the head of the Great Glen on the banks of the River Ness. It is often referred to as the capital of the Highlands. Inverness was established as a Royal Burgh by King David in 1158.

Because of its involvement in so much of Scotland's violent history there are very few buildings of historic significance left in Inverness, the Old High Church being a notable exception. The Old High Church is the furthest left of the spires in the photograph. The photograph shows Bank Street taken from the opposite side of the river looking up towards Inverness Castle.
