There is still a lot of editing and graphic design work to be done. Those yellow post its are multiplying daily. But after years of hard graft, it is a real boost to get us through the last few weeks of preparation.

Inverness has a fascinating history. A real Hollywood plot line;

A small community with big dreams, finds itself bullied and beaten down by its bigger southern neighbours, when everything seems lost, it rebuilds itself as a modern, innovative city that built an Empire. I can’t wait till we can share this story with everybody.

I am driving the graphic designer and editor crazy with rewrites and extra content but we should still be on track to have it in the shops in the spring.

This is going to be a high quality coffee table book with 330 pages with over 200 buildings and 400 photographs / illustrations covering the whole history of Inverness and Inverness shire, from prehistory to the present day. It amazing to compare the contemporary buildings with the historic buildings, side by side.

.

There has been a lot of interest already, with people wanting a coveted first edition, I think we will sell out very quickly.

In the New Year, we will start taking orders. Keep an eye out for more news, or if you want drop me an email, if you want to get a notification direct to your inbox.

We would like to thank everyone for all their support to help get us this far, particularly Inverness Architectural Association and Inverness Common Good Fund.
