The ferry unloads at the new jetty, Kyle of Lochalsh

By the 1950s, there were three ferries on the Kyle to Skye crossing during the busy summer months. A record number of vehicles, 199, was carried in one day in late July 1950, involving around 100 crossings. The new slipway, reconstructed in 1950-51, is also seen in the photograph
