Proposed in 1898 by a group of business men who appear to have been the directors of the loco manufacturer, Dick Kerr, the Hebridean Light Railway would have been the most extensive narrow gauge system in Scotland covering some 72 miles in total.
The proposal for the line was put together by Sir Douglas Fox and a W.M. Barrington as the consultant engineers. The route the two chose began at Isle Ornsay (the station modelled as the layout covered by this website), then running on to Broadford and Sligachan. It then reached Portree, and three miles north of Portree split into two branches, the main one running to Uig, the other taking a more tortuous route to Dunvegan.
More details coming soon.
