Kyleakin to Kyle of Lochalsh Ferry

This postcard shows a view of one of the ferry boats that ran from Kyleakin to Kyle of Lochalsh, during the 1970s and 1980s. This type of vessel was later replaced by a larger model.

Kyleakin has been the main crossing point from Skye to the mainland at least since the 17th century. Until the mid-1930s, only one car at a time could be transported across the strait. Today the ferry is no longer in public use due to the building of the Skye Bridge, linking the island to the mainland
