The SS 'Sheila', seen here in Loch Alsh with Kyleakin on Skye in the background, was a well-respected little ship which crossed the Minch in all weathers carrying passengers, cargo and the mail between Kyle of Lochalsh and Stornoway. She was built and acquired by the MacBrayne company in 1904, but met an early demise when she ran aground early on New Year's morning 1927 while making her way to Applecross. Thankfully, no lives were lost
