Former Youth Hostel
Former Youth Hostel
Possibly still open in Gordon McKinlay's 2007 photograph NG7526 : Kyleakin Youth Hostel, the hostel closed that year and has gradually decayed since then. In former days, Kyleakin was important, being at the busy Skye end of the Kyle ferry from the mainland. However, Kyleakin gets far fewer visitors now that most visiting traffic whizzes over the Skye bridge and bypasses the small town.
