Kyleakin at Sunset

When crossing from the mainland to Skye, Kyleakin has been the destination since the early 17th century. At one time Lord Macdonald proposed to build a 'model town', calling it New Liverpool. Luckily that never materialised. Duncan Macpherson would have looked over at Kyleakin from his chemist's shop in Kyle. He included this photograph in two tourist booklets he produced in the early 1920s, which he sold in his shop. The booklets, likely aimed at the tourist market, were called, Glimpses of the Isle of Skye, and Isles and Peaks of the West
