A steamer leaves the railway pier at Kyle of Lochalsh and heads south-east down the loch, with the fish-curing buildings at Fernbank Works visible on the left. On the right is the island of Skye. The steamer is believed to be the S.S. Claymore, built for David MacBrayne in 1881 to carry cargo and passengers on the Glasgow - Stornoway route. From 1918 she served Skye and the mainland cargo trade until 1927, when she took over from the Sheila after she foundered. The Claymore was scrapped in 1931
