Kyle Pharmacy

Duncan Macpherson built his Kyle Pharmacy on land rented from the Highland Railway Company for an annual sum of three pounds. It was on the corner of Station Road and Ferry Road, and was therefore in a prime position to take advantage of the tourists crossing to Skye. The Pharmacy operated in Kyle of Lochalsh from 1912 to the early 1960s and sold a wide variety of goods including photographic supplies and postcards. Duncan Macpherson was also the author of three books about his life and times in Kyle of Lochalsh, and published an annual tourist guide to the area. His son Neil is at the window
