This is indeed St Regulas Episcopal Church, designed by Dr. Alexander Ross of Inverness, who was
also the Architect responsible for the design of Inverness Cathedral, along with many of the other Churches in the Highlands, irrespective of denomination. Other fine buildings credited to him are:-
Ardross Terrace & Ardross Street Inverness, and the last of the 19th Century extensions to Cawdor
Castle. I served my time in the Queensgate Office of the same practice, with Dr Ross' son, J.Alistair
Ross, as an architectural draughtsman.The original watercolour of the above, hung in the 28 Queens-
-gate Office, along with those of Inverness Cathedral, all the personal work of Dr Alexander Ross.
The tower, as envisaged, for St Regulas, did not go ahead due to lack of funding..what's changed?
