Main Street, formerly approached from the north, with the Scots Revival Royal Bank of Scotland (formerly the Commercial Bank), Sydney Mitchell & Wilson, 1895-6, vying for attention with the solidly gabled and mullioned Bank of Scotland and Post Office, Ross & Macbeth, 1904. Ascending the Plock, at Hamilton Place, Maine-style timber-clad housing, c.1940, No 2 still with its original horizontal clap-boarding. Nicholson Court, Heathmount Road, Robert Hurd & Prtnrs, 1966-9; a Modernist-vernacular scheme for three tower blocks, modified to one tower and lower blocks of terraced housing to cope with the exposure of the site. This tower theme is echoed on the edge of Douglas Park (opened 1957), with Douglas Court, Frank Burstow of Hurd Rolland Partnership, 1990. Sensible 1960s housing for Ross & Cromarty County Council ascends Cnoc Terrace in gabled pairs. Above is Langlands Terrace, Hurd Rolland Partnership, 1988.
