Station Hotel, Kyle of Lochalsh

The hotel was originally a lodge owned by Sir Alexander Matheson. His son Sir Kenneth Matheson sold it to the railway company in about 1897. It was still owned by the London Midland Scottish Railway Co. in 1930, and evidently still using oil lamps and candles. A generator was installed, but the noise kept guests awake at night and so was turned off every evening. This photograph was taken before the hotel was greatly enlarged and renamed the Lochalsh Hotel
