TSS Lochness

A large crowd of passengers is aboard the TSS Lochness waiting to leave Kyle of Lochalsh. The Lochness was built for the MacBrayne ferry company in 1929, making her maiden voyage on Glasgow Fair Saturday. She took over the Mallaig, Kyle, Stornoway route and was run by the very popular Captain MacArthur, who the photographer describes as 'a handsome, upright Highlander, equally affable to the fishworker crossing steerage, and the more affluent visitor travelling first class'. The Lochness was sold in 1955 to Italian owners, then in 1958 to Greek owners, and she ended her working days in the Aegean Islands
