Alness High Street


Shopkeepers and business owners in Alness work together to ensure they all offer something different, providing shoppers with variety, alongside old-fashioned service from helpful, caring staff. Every business in Alness adapted to offer disabled-friendly access in the 1990s, long before it became normal practice to do so. The Alness in Bloom group works hard to ensure an attractive high street and the general cleanliness of the area is maintained by a group of volunteers. Alness High Street has over 70 businesses, 96% of which are independent, an unusually high rate.
