SS 'Lochness'

This photograph shows the SS 'Lochness' at Kyle of Lochalsh. The boat was built for MacBrayne's in 1929, and took over the Mallaig, Kyle of Lochalsh, Stornoway route after the SS Sheila ran aground in 1927. SS 'Lochness' fuelled at Kyle and a large oil storage tank had to be built which became a prominent feature of the pier. She was sold in the 1950s.

The foreground of the photograph shows the Kyle-Kyleakin car ferry, which was equipped with a turntable and ramps, but could only carry one vehicle
