Academy Street

One of the principal shopping streets in the centre of Inverness, Academy Street extends in a southeasterly direction from Chapel Street to the Eastgate Shopping Centre. Originally known as New Street, the street takes its name from Inverness Royal Academy, a school which was located here between 1795 and 1895. This building remains at Nos 40-44. Inverness Victorian Market has its principal entrance from Academy Street. Also located here are Inverness Railway Station, in a small square with the Station Hotel (1855) and the Cameron Highlander's Monument (1891). The frontage of the Rose Street Foundry also remains.
