Inverness railway station

There has been a station here since 1855, but the present buildings date from 1966-1968. It is a terminal station with a total of seven platforms on two sides of a triangle (one for trains to the far north and Kyle of Lochalsh, the other for trains to Aberdeen, central Scotland and a handful of through trains to London). The third side of the triangle is for freight bypassing the station.

Debenhams

Debenhams was founded in London in 1778 by Thomas Clark under the name 'Flint and Clark'; there were a number of partner and name changes before the store became 'Debenhams Limited' in 1905.

The large department store was best known for its clothing, cosmetics and home ware.

In 2009 Debenhams had over 153 stores in the UK, with more due to open.

All stores closed for ever in 2021.
