Kyle Jetty and Lochalsh Hotel

The jetty was used for the small ferry boats crossing to Kyleakin on Skye, and to Glenelg. Kyle of Lochalsh has been the location of a ferry since the 17th century, but it was not until the extension of the railway to Kyle in 1897 that traffic using it increased rapidly. The Station Hotel in the background has also expanded over the years, changing its name in the process to the Lochalsh Hotel. The road and jetty were privately owned by the LMS - London Midland Scottish Railway Company.
