Building the Fuel StorageTank, Kyle of Lochalsh

The fuel storage tank has a capacity of 250,000 gallons, and was built close to the railway pier where the steamers tied up. The tank supplied the ships with oil, and was built initially when the S.S. Lochness, which burnt oil rather than coal, took over the Stornoway mail service
