Inverness Town House - Window Panel

This photograph shows detail of the lower part of the stained glass window which is in the middle of the north wall, in the Main Hall, in Inverness Town House.

The inscription at the bottom reads 'This window is placed here in remembrance of Duncan Grant of Bught by his affectionate wife'.

On the left is Sir Walter Scott with his favourite dog and, on the right, Ossian, the Celtic bard and poet.

Between these panels hangs a bell with the inscription 'H.M.S. Inverness 1990' and below is a model of the ship. The inscription on the plaque reads 'Presented to the City of Inverness by the Commanding Officer and Ships Company, HMS Inverness to mark the granting of the Freedom of the City to HMS Inverness. 22 October 2004.'

H.M.S. Inverness was a Royal Navy minesweeper, commissioned in 1990 and based at Faslane on the River Clyde. She was decommissioned in 2005 as part of cutbacks to the Armed Forces.
