Demolition of a historic building in the heart of Inverness is gathering pace.
Rose Street Hall, between Farraline Park bus station and Rose Street, is subject to a demolition warrant, news which surprised residents of the city, many of whom were unaware that permission to demolish the building was in place.
The building was not listed and has stood mostly vacant since the Covid pandemic struck.
The backpackers hostel that occupied part of the building never reopened its doors after the pandemic and the Station News shop closed its doors at the end of last month.

The site is owned by SRP Inverness, which is behind plans for a new hotel on land immediately opposite the hall and next to the Spectrum Centre. It was the applicant which successfully secured the demolition warrant for Rose Street Hall back in 2020.
