Main Street, Kyle of Lochalsh

A local Ross and Cromarty registered vehicle is parked in Main Street, Kyle of Lochalsh. It has been suggested that this was the Kyle to Glenshiel mailcoach. The Commercial Bank is behind it and the Kyle Hotel further up the road. Although the location of a ferry to Skye for centuries, the village of Kyle expanded rapidly when the railway was extended from Stromeferry in 1897. The Commercial Bank was built around this time to serve the local population, which, by 1917 rose to about 350. The photographer, Duncan Macpherson, was an early incomer, opening his pharmacy in Kyle in 1912
