The End of the Road, Kyle of Lochalsh

Not so much the end of the road as the end of the line. The railway approaches Kyle of Lochalsh, behind the photographer, and its terminus at the railway pier. Often regarded as one of the most scenic railway jouneys in Britain, the route from Inverness and Dingwall took many years to complete, particularly the last few miles from Stromeferry to Kyle which involved very difficult engineering work and was not opened until 1897. The Plock of Kyle lies on the left across the bay
