This is the first full history of Inverness Royal Academy ever to be published. The Academy was founded in 1792 and the story is taken from that date up to the 1992 bi-centenary celebrations. Prior to the establishment of the Academy there was a town Grammar School, and before that a song school attached to the local priory. These early schools are also recorded here. The book is aimed at both the general reader and the scholar of the history of education in Scotland.
