View from Memorial Hill, Kyleakin, Skye

The wide grassy verge fronting Kyleakin was a feature of the village until an increase in traffic using the ferry to the mainland necessitated much of the grass being replaced with a car park. On the extreme right are the remnants of the large wooden pier where steamers once called regularly en route to Portree and other west coast ports. Unseen in the photograph is the War Memorial which gives the rocky knoll its name. The Memorial, a Celtic cross of Peterhead granite, was unveiled by Mrs MacInnes of the King's Arms Hotel in Kyleakin on the 15th April 1921
