Paddle Steamer "Glencoe"

This photograph shows the Glencoe, having left Kyle pier, heading north through Loch Alsh. The paddle steamer Glencoe, originally called the 'Mary Jane', was built in 1857. In the 1870s it was associated with the Oban - Gairloch route, and also used in the summer months on the Portree - Strome Ferry route before the railway was extended from Stromeferry to Kyle. In the early part of the 20th century and after World War I, the Glencoe was on the Kyle - Mallaig mail route with twice weekly visits to Loch Coruisk. The Glencoe was withdrawn from service in 1931
