Station Hotel, Kyle of Lochalsh

The Station Hotel in Kyle of Lochalsh was built near the Kyle-Kyleakin ferry jetty with the railway terminus a short distance away. The original building on the site was a private dwelling, Kyle Cottage, and was owned by Sir Alexander Matheson. His son, Sir Kenneth Alexander, sold it to the London Midland & Scottish Railway Company when the rail line was extended to Kyle of Lochalsh from Stromeferry. The building was converted to a hotel and has undergone many changes and alterations. In the 1950s its name was changed to the Lochalsh Hotel.
