Loch Beag, Bracadale, Isle of Skye

Loch Beag is a small inlet off Loch Harport on the west coast of Skye. The photograph was taken from the narrow B885 road crossing the island from Portree to Bracadale and Struan. The houses of both places are seen on the right, where, according to Duncan Macpherson, the photographer, writing in the 1940s, "there are several shops by the wayside, the contents of which appear to be remarkably varied." The buildings on the left are part of the small village of Coillore, strung out along the old road south to Gesto and Drynoch. The road has now been replaced by the A863 which follows the coast
