Headed Notepaper, Broadford Hotel, Page 1

The Broadford Hotel is one of the oldest on the island, reputedly established as an Inn in 1611. It is pictured in the left vignette, beside the bridge over the river which flows into Broadford Bay. Broadford was a regular port of call for the steamers which plied the west coast from Glasgow, to Oban, Kyle of Lochalsh, Portree and out to Stornoway, and the pier pictured was once a hive of activity.

The letter refers to photographs of laying the foundation stone for Broadford Hospital. The Mackinnon Memorial Hospital is situated not far from the pier pictured, at Corry, and as the commemorative plaque states "was erected by public subscription as a token of affection and regard for the memory of the Rev. Donald Mackinnon D.D., who was minister of this parish for 32 years and died on the 3rd day of January 1888."
