Made in Inverness by Courier columnist Charles Bannerman is a reflection of his childhood growing up in the Dalneigh area of the city from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s that he hopes will chime with many readers.

The book had already received a lot of support even before it was published.

“I’ve been quite taken aback at the positive reaction to the book on a number of Inverness-based Facebook pages and that was what gave me the final incentive to publish,” Mr Bannerman said.

The book costs £10 and will be on sale throughout Inverness, including at Dalneigh Stores in the city’s St Margaret’s Road.

Written mostly during lockdown, Mr Bannerman has penned six previous books, the most recent two of which were published through city charity For The Right Reasons, which was recently wound up.

Its leading lights, Richard Burkitt and Stewart Forbes, however, are continuing as a publishing firm and also produced the writer’s latest book.

“I had no hesitation in going back to Richard and Stewart in their new enterprise, given the very good working relationship I had with them on two of my previous books,” Mr Bannerman said.
