Queue for the ferry to Skye, Kyle of Lochalsh

As the ferry to Skye only carried two vehicles at a time, the car owners in this queue would be waiting quite a while. The vehicles, one small truck and a variety of 2- and 4-door saloons, date from around 1929 to 1934. They would probably have been owned by visitors with more money than the local Lochalsh residents. The Station Hotel, later the Lochalsh Hotel, can just be seen on the right, with the village of Kyleakin on Skye in the distance
