Station Hotel (later Lochalsh Hotel), Kyle of Lochalsh

Rather than being near the railway station, the Station Hotel was next to the jetty from where the ferry crossed to Skye, with the railway terminus a short walk away. The road to the hotel and jetty was owned by London Midland & Scottish Railway Company. Kyle Cottage, the original building on this picturesque site was owned by Sir Alexander Matheson. His son Sir Kenneth Matheson sold it to the Railway Company when the railway was extended from Stromeferry. The building has undergone many alterations and additions, including a name change in the 1950s to the Lochalsh Hotel
