Glenelg

Glenelg is a small village on the shore of Glenelg Bay, looking across to the Isle of Skye. Known until the 18th century as Kirkton, the village grew up round a parish church, and expanded with the arrival of the army and the building of the Bernera Barracks. It is possible that the houses on the main street were originally built for the officers from the Bernera Barracks. The man pulling the cart outside the Glenelg post office is probably Calum Garde, the ferry owner at the time
