Railway cutting on the approach to Kyle of Lochalsh

Rock cutting in the railway line, on the approach to Kyle of Lochalsh. This section of railway was originally included in the Dingwall and Skye Railway line's proposals. It finally opened in 1897, the line having amalgamated with Highland Railways' network by that time. Today it is part of the ScotRail service.

Cuttings like these are frequent on the last few miles of this line. Consequently, the building costs per mile on the Strome Ferry to Kyle section were five times greater than the rest of the line
