Sand Farmhouse, July 1938

A photograph, taken in July 1938, of Sand Farmhouse, located near the beaches of Big Sand and Little Sand, near the crofting community of Gairloch.

The Gairloch community once consisted of a number of small scattered settlements. Prior to the completion of the road in 1843 (the current A832) access to the area was almost exclusively by sea. Once 'opened up', the Gairloch area became a popular destination for Victorian tourists wishing to sample a taste of the Highland 'sublime'. The area experienced a boom following a royal visit in 1877 by Queen Victoria, who rested there during her stay at nearby Loch Maree Hotel.
