High Street, Nairn

A view of High Street in Nairn which was once a busy market place for the town and was lined with stalls selling goods from the surrounding area, some of them brought to Nairn by sea. It was also home to the town's museum and the Town House.

The royal burgh of Nairn, founded around 1214, was once known as Invernairn, where the River Nairn meets the Moray Firth. Once a fishing and farming community, the town was transformed into a popular Victorian seaside resort. Although still a fishertown in the middle of the 19th century, by a hundred years later its fishing community had disappeared
