'Lochnevis' leaving Kyle pier

The T.S.M.V. 'Lochnevis' was launched in 1934 for the Mallaig to Portree mail service. It was diesel-electric powered, and served as a minelayer during World War II. After the war, it was stationed at various ports including Oban, Mallaig and Greenock. Duncan Macpherson reports that it was in the harbour at Kyle when the Port Napier went on fire on 27 September 1940. It was finally withdrawn from service in the 1960s
