Up to four hours of free parking will be available in Inverness each Saturday in the run-up to Christmas.

It is designed to attract more people to the city centre.

The offer will be at Rose Street multi-storey car park on November 4, 11, 18 and 25 as well as December 2, 9, 16 and 23.

Parking beyond the free four hours will be charged for the full period used, stated Highland Council.

The council's Inverness leader Ian Brown said: “I am very pleased that members of the Inverness Common Good Fund sub committee have agreed to this temporary new parking tariff that is designed to increase footfall to the city centre and to support retail business in the run-up to the festive season.

“Together with the investment in the Victorian Market, this promotion will help encourage people to visit and stay longer in the city centre which supports city vibrancy. Many small to medium sized businesses will benefit and this offering will encourage greater wellbeing within the city community.”
