The Skye Bridge connects Skye with mainland Scotland at Kyle of Lochalsh (or Kyle). Kyle is on the mainland with Kyleakin being just across the bridge on Skye. Last night I drove to Kyle to pick up my son Tim who has come to stay with me for two weeks. He arrived on the train from Inverness. He is somewhere on that train in the photo below! The train line stops yards before the sea. Last night the Lord of the Glens cruise ship was in Kyle.
