Kyle of Lochalsh Railway Bridge

Kyle of Lochalsh had been the location of a ferry link to the Isle of Skye from as early as 1600. When the rail line reached Kyle in 1897 a village including a hotel, shops, a library and accommodation had to be built for the railway staff. The ferry service between Kyle of Lochalsh to Kyleakin on Skye ended in 1995 when the Skye Bridge opened.
