Boy by a river

The young boy in the photograph, standing with arms folded to the left of the bridge, is almost certainly Neil, the son of the photographer Duncan Macpherson. He often accompanied his father on walks and cycling trips in the area around Kyle of Lochalsh, always with a camera. It has been suggested that this photograph was taken just before the start of the Bealach na Ba, the notoriously steep and twisting pass on the Applecross - Lochcarron road. Neil was born and educated in Kyle. He died in 1944, aged 24, as a result of injuries sustained while serving in the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent
