First Sunday Excursion from Kyle

The railway was extended to Kyle from Stromeferry, in 1897, after several years of very difficult engineering works. Kyle expanded rapidly as a result, and the ferry across to Skye, in the background of the photograph, became the most popular route to the island. The imposing house left of centre, called Viewhill, was the station master's house. Stoney road in the foreground was indeed stony at the time, and the playing field in the bend of the road is now occupied by a garage and other buildings
