King's Arms Hotel, Kyleakin

The King's Arms Hotel originally comprised the Kyleakin Hotel, built by J. Gillespie Graham around 1812 - 20, and a shooting lodge. Around 1898 the shooting lodge was converted into a hotel and both were combined in 1900 to become the King's Arms. At that time it was tenanted by Mr and Mrs Donald MacInnes, and remained the only licensed premises in the village until the outbreak of World War ll. One of the proprietors, Donald Skinner, is remembered for being the first to introduce bus tours to various parts of Skye.
