Memories of a key city centre street are being sought as part of plans to create a new heritage trail.
People who have lived, worked, shopped or socialised on Inverness’s Academy Street are being asked to help with the project.
The idea is being developed by the Inverness Townscape Heritage Project – which was set up to look at ways of regenerating the thoroughfare.
The body is working with the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery to develop the trail.
A public workshop will be held this Thursday for people to share their memories, stories and memorabilia.
Councillor Richard Laird, chairman of townscape partnership board said: “This drop-in event is a great opportunity for anyone who has connections to Academy Street to share their memories and artefacts.
“The project is working to create a digital heritage trail and any memorabilia uncovered can be included in the trail.
“I would encourage everyone who has an interest in Academy Street to attend this event.”
The session will be held at the Royal Highland Hotel between 3pm and 5.30pm on Thursday.
A selection of old photographs, maps, newspaper adverts and articles will be on display and there will be opportunities to share your memories and stories about day to day life on Academy Street.
In particular the group are looking to hear from people who used Academy Street for shopping or running a business.
There are also looking for people who used the now long-closed La Scala cinema or the who frequented the street’s many pubs.
Inverness Townscape Heritage project is a partnership initiative with Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Highland Council.
The project was established in 2015 to work on the regeneration of Academy Street through its rich heritage.
When it was established the project identified key projects to improve the historic street, including working on the AI Welders building which is currently being renovated and improving Station Square.
