On Board the Loch Toscaig

This photograph is on the front cover of Duncan Macpherson's book 'Where I Belong', and chapter 14 of the book tells of a trip on the boat. The Loch Toscaig was a small ship built for the route between Kyle of Lochalsh and Applecross.

The Loch Toscaig replaced the Loch Seaforth, which previously called at Applecross en route to and from Stornoway. A temporary pier was built at the head of Loch Toscaig, four miles south of Applecross. The vessel left Toscaig every morning to reach Kyle of Lochalsh, and connect with the Mallaig boat. Between these trips the boat ran pleasure cruises, particularly along Loch Duich.

Duncan Macpherson took this particular trip with an annual visitor to Kyle of Lochalsh from Cornwall, Mr Dalby Peters, seen here on deck with Macpherson
