The village of Broadford is dominated by the slopes of Beinn na Caillich, "The Hill of the Old Woman", and lies looking over the sheltered waters of Broadford Bay to Applecross and Loch Carron. For many years a busy steamer port on the route between Kyle of Lochalsh and Portree, the pier pictured was built in 1807 by James Gillespie Graham. The Broadford Hotel is one of the oldest on the island, and despite consisting of the hotel and 3 houses in 1843, Broadford is now second in size to Portree on Skye
