Station Hotel, Kyle of Lochalsh

The hotel was originally a Lodge owned by Sir Alexander Matheson. Subsequently his son Sir Kenneth Matheson sold it to the Railway Co. in c1897. It was still owned by the London Midland Scottish Railway Co. in 1930, and evidently still using oil lamps and candles. A generator was installed, but the noise kept guests awake at night and so was turned off every evening. In this photograph, the hotel has been whitewashed, but subsequently it was greatly enlarged and renamed the Lochalsh Hotel
