Kyle Public Hall

The Foundation stone for Kyle Public Hall was laid on 3 September 1931 by Sir Daniel and Lady Hamilton. The hall was officially opened on 8 April 1932. The Masonic Lodge used the part of the building on the left. After the hall was built, Sir Harry Lauder, a regular visitor to the area, gave a concert to raise funds to pay off debts. He evidently sang for an hour! The tennis courts are visible just behind the hall, and the village of Kyle of Lochalsh, as well as Kyleakin on Skye, can be seen in the background
