Kyleakin, Skye, on a Stormy Day

In this hand-coloured card, the village of Kyleakin is viewed from Kyle of Lochalsh across the strait. The numbers of vessels at anchor indicate the importance of the sea in the days before good roads and public transport. Steamers plied the west coast and islands, carrying freight and the mail as well as passengers, and the piers and harbours were a hive of activity
