Pladaig Bay playing fields, Kyle of Lochalsh

This view of the new playing fields on the reclaimed area on the upper part of Pladaig Bay, was taken from Main Street in Kyle of Lochalsh, looking north west. In his book 'Where I Belong', Duncan Macpherson describes how a Playing Fields Association was formed to raise subscriptions for new playing fields when the old cricket ground near Railway Terrace was used for other things. Six years of work was involved, much of it voluntary, to blast rock, fill in and fence an area of several acres which was then seeded. The playing field was opened in 1950 having cost about £16,000
