Armadale Pier

The first public jetty was built at Armadale in 1872, but it was unsuitable for steamers as it did not reach deep water. Mail, passengers and freight were brought ashore by rowing boat until this first deep water pier was built in 1914. It was intended as a temporary structure but was still in use 30 years later. As in Portree, a landing charge was demanded of steamer passengers alighting at Armadale, on behalf of the local landowner Lord MacDonald
