Pioneer Stores, Kyle of Lochalsh

A little girl, thought to be Peggy Simpson, a niece of the owner of the shop, sits on the veranda of the Pioneer Stores. The shop was owned by Alexander MacRae, known as the Pioneer or Pie. He lived for some time at Stromeferry, but moved to Kyle when the railway was extended. His daughter Johann worked in the shop for many years. The Pioneer Stores was reputed to sell everything "from a needle to an anchor" and was on Main Street in Kyle of Lochalsh
