MacGregor's Tweed Shop, Kyle of Lochalsh

Donald MacGregor's Tweed shop was situated on Main Street in Kyle of Lochalsh. He went to Harris each year to purchase tweed, paying in cash and returning with the tweed to stock his shop. It is said that Wallis Simpson purchased a length of tweed from the shop while on a trip by yacht with the Duchess of Sutherland. As can be seen in the photograph, MacGregor also stocked knitwear and postcards, provided accommodation and ran tea rooms
