Kyle of Lochalsh from the south

This postcard shows Kyle of Lochalsh in Ross-shire, from the south. A settlement is thought to have existed here since at least the 17th century. The village grew with the construction of a road link to Inverness in 1819 and the Highland Line rail link in 1897.
Kyle also became the main terminus for the ferry link from the mainland to the island of Skye. Although the Kyle to Kyleakin ferry came out of operation in 1995, it was replaced by the Skye Bridge at Kyle. Today, this ensures that tourists still visit the village on their journey to Skye
