Lochalsh Hotel
Lochalsh Hotel
The Highland Railway Company purchased, around 1897, what was marked on the railway plans as Kyle Cottage but called on the OS map Kyle-lochalsh House and converted it into the Station Hotel. It was renamed Lochalsh Hotel sometime between 1934 and 1937 by the London Midland & Scottish Railway Company who had absorbed the Highland Railway Company in 1923. Not long after 1935 the original building was partly demolished and extended to the west as shown in a 1930s LMS poster by Norman Wilkinson and it was probably at this reconstruction the hotel's name was changed. In about 1971 the west wing was added. Established around 1962 by Beeching to manage the nationalised railway system's hotels and catering business, British Transport Hotels Ltd sold off its assets by open tender in 1983/4 and Lochalsh Hotel was sold in 1983. NG7627 : Kyle of Lochalsh shows the hotel in 1965 without the extension and NG7627 : Lochalsh Hotel and Skye ferry 1973 with it.
