Erbusaig Village

This photo, taken from a hill above the road, provides a good view of the township of Erbusaig north of Kyle of Lochalsh. Prior to 1897 when the railway line was extended from Stromeferry to Kyle, Erbusaig had easy and scenic access to the sea. The railway, taking the shortest route through a very rocky coastline destroyed the view of the sea, and left only a small opening for the tidal water. Erbusaig, part of the Balmacara Estate owned by the National Trust for Scotland, is still an active crofting township.
