One pound banknote of The Caledonian Banking Company, 1839

One pound banknote of the Caledonian Banking Company, dated July 1839. Founded in Inverness in 1838, this bank operated branches from the Moray Firth to Caithness - 20 of them by 1845. Its head office was built in Inverness High Street in 1847.

The notes produced by the bank were unique as they included Gaelic inscriptions. The inscriptions around the edges of this note translate as 'Land of the Mountains, the Glens, and the Heroes'. The bank was finally absorbed by the Bank of Scotland in 1907
