Old High Church



The original Parish Church of Inverness dedicated to St Mary, and stands on a low hill known as St Michael's Mount.

The present church was designed by George Fraser of Edinburgh begun in 1770. The oldest surviving part of the church is the base of the tower, which makes it the oldest building in Inverness. As the official town church of Inverness, it is the site of an annual ceremony known as the 'Kirking of the Council', when the Provost and councillors walk in procession from the Town House to the church for worship.
