Scope and Content Grain and hay store, Inverness, Inverness-shire (Highland council area) This group of buildings appears to have been built as a store for grain and hay to be used to feed horses at a time when horse haulage was essential to urban life. By 1980 it had diversified into being a general agricultural store. This view shows the complex from the south east, with the office block on the right. This faces down Academy Street, one of Inverness's leading streets. The two storey stores are on the left, with a hoist door to the first floor. Note the ventilator. Inverness was until the 1960s still largely a market town serving a large agricultural area, and this store continued to be part of that function. By the 2000 it was a bathroom centre, a reflection of the changing nature of what became a city in 2001. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
