Dunvegan from the south-west, Skye

This postcard shows Dunvegan village by the shores of Loch Dunvegan, Skye. Behind are the flat tops of the MacLeod's Tables, forming part of the Duirinish Peninsula. To the extreme left is the Dunvegan Hotel, built around 1900.

Once an important port, Dunvegan was a stopping off point for steamers travelling to the Western Isles. It also ran a daily service to Oban. Today the area is most famous for being home to Dunvegan Castle, seat of the chiefs of the MacLeods
