Stornoway steamer, SS 'Lochness'

This photograph shows Captain MacArthur of the SS 'Lochness' at Kyle of Lochalsh pier. SS 'Lochness' 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. The Lochness fuelled at Kyle, and a large oil storage tank had to be built there which became a prominent feature of the pier. She was sold in the 1950s. The large horse behind the captain was not a common sight on the railway pier
