General View looking West, Kyleakin, Skye

The Obbe, a tidal inlet, is seen here meandering through the small village of Kyleakin. The jetty for the ferry to and from the mainland lies out of shot to the right, while the substantial wooden pier on the shore served the larger steamers which were once the best means of transport on the west coast of Scotland. Eilean Ban, with its lighthouse and accompanying cottages, lies in the background
