Inverness Townscape Heritage Project

Academy Street


The Inverness Townscape Heritage (TH) project was a grant-giving scheme that helped regenerate areas of social or economic need, in this case Academy Street.  Academy Street is an integral part of the historic Old Town. It originally formed the defensive north east edge of Inverness, but later became the workshop or industrial area. It was helped by the railway bringing growth and development to the area and Inverness as a whole. The TH Project aimed to help the local community and businesses understand the rich heritage of the street. Inverness Museum and Art Gallery worked with local groups to create content for a digital trail, highlighting the history and development of the area.
