From a small cluster of houses, the village of Kyle of Lochalsh grew rapidly with the arrival of the railway in 1897. This photograph, taken in the 1910s shows the expansion inland with houses all along the main road. The Free Church (built 1902) roof is prominent in the foreground, with the Drill Hall and Church of Scotland (built 1901) directly behind. The photographers' house, Glenquithel, is seen in centre foreground. The view, one frequently shot by Duncan Macpherson, shows hills of Skye, with Beinn na Caillich on the left and the Cuillin range to the right
