Greig St Bridge and two of Inverness's churches
Greig St Bridge and two of Inverness's churches
The Greig Street suspension footbridge crosses the River Ness, and on the far bank can be seen two of Inverness's churches. The one on the left is the Old High Church, dating mainly from C18th with additions made in the C19th; however parts of the tower are much older, dating back to the C14th. This church is the historic parish church of Inverness for those adherents of the Church of Scotland. It is sited on St. Michael's Mount, where it is said St Columba of Iona once preached.
The church on the right with the considerably taller spire, is the Free North Church, built in Victorian Gothic style, it was designed by the architect Alexander Ross, and dates from c. 1843
