SY 'Killarney' at Kyle of Lochalsh

The SY 'Killarney' was a Liverpool-registered cruise ship that sailed to the Western Isles. Kyle of Lochalsh was one of the regular stops in the tourist season. The shop keepers were always pleased to welcome the Killarney's well-heeled passengers as they were generous when buying local goods and souvenirs. Duncan Macpherson mentions in his book, 'Gateway to Skye', that the passengers and crew from the Killarney joined the locals in a match at the Kyle cricket club
