Highland Cattle at Elgol, Isle of Skye

Despite its remote location, Elgol has been a popular destination for visitors since Victorian times, due to the stunning views of the Cuillin mountains and the departure of regular boat trips across Loch Scavaig to famous Loch Coruisk. Gars-Bheinn (895m, 2936ft) in the background seems to rise straight from the sea, with part of the Cuillin ridge behind.

This card was produced by Jerome Limited, a chain of photographers with shops in various parts of Britain. One of their branches was in Leith Street in Edinburgh, from about 1934 to the early 1970s. Although specialising in Portrait photography, they also processed film and printed images as postcards
