The world’s strongest brothers have officially opened a new state-of-the-art builder’s merchant in Inverness.

MKM Inverness in Harbour Road has created 17 new jobs and is the first branch to open its doors to both trade and the public in the city for over 15 years.

To mark the occasion, Tom Stoltman – recently crowned World’s Strongest Man – and his brother Luke, the five-time winner of Scotland’s Strongest Man, were special guests.

As well as meeting fans, the pair used the kitchen showroom to showcase the breakfast which led to them becoming champions – a mighty 20 eggs!

Luke Stoltman said: "As a local resident, it’s great to see independent businesses investing in Inverness and providing a service like this for local trades and the general public.

"MKM is a first-class facility run by extremely knowledgeable and helpful people, so it’s really going to add value to the area."

The Inverness store is headed by branch directors Mark MacDonald and Graeme Macleod who have worked together for more than a decade.

"For us, it’s all about providing our customers with a best-in-class service offering, in a friendly and welcoming environment, delivered by expert and knowledgeable staff that have years of experience in Inverness and the wider region," Mr MacDonald said.

"We are absolutely delighted to be opening and look forward to welcoming customers through our doors."
