Ferry queue at Kyle of Lochalsh

This photograph shows a queue of cars waiting for the ferry at Kyle of Lochalsh, to go to Kyleakin, Isle of Skye. In the busy summer months the long queue could run up the Main Street, and right through the village of Kyle. In the right of the photograph you can just see the corner of the Lochalsh Hotel. Built as a private shooting lodge in 1801, it was purchased by the Railway Co in 1897, and operated as the Station Hotel.
