Street Names of Nairn – Irene Main Mackintosh

Nairn is fortunate in having several local historians who publish excellent material. Irene Main Mackintosh is no exception; her new book 'Street Names of Nairn' is a fascinating read covering the history of nearly 40 Nairn streets including The Maggot! (Cause of much controversy earlier in the year when a developer wanted to sanitise the name)

The proceeds from the sale of the book (£3.99) are for Nairn museum, so rush out and buy yourself a copy soon. Just right for nights by the fireside now the days are drawing in.
