The town of Kyleakin lies opposite Kyle of Lochalsh. It is named after King Haakon IV of Norway whose fleet was moored here before the Battle of Largs in 1263, and whose subsequent defeat contributed to the end of Norwegian hegemony. We stopped briefly in this picturesque place and were able to catch the local fishermen in the photo below as they returned with their catch of shellfish and they gave us a few names of local divers to contact. The castle  in the background of this image is the 15th century Caisteal Maol.
