The strait between Kyle of Lochalsh and Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye was a busy waterway during Duncan Macpherson's time as the local chemist. The shop was situated in a central position near the waterfront, giving Macpherson opportunity to see passing vessels. The Sheila, pictured here, was on the Mallaig - Kyle - Stornoway route. It ran aground in Applecross in 1927 and was replaced by the Lochness in 1929. Macpherson used this photograph in the tourist book he published in 1923, 'Isles and Peaks of the West, From Rugged Sgurr Ouran to the Misty Isle of Skye'
