The Lochdunvegan is seen in this panoramic photograh approaching the railway pier at Kyle of Lochalsh. The steamer, with a tonnage of 411, was built in 1891 as the Denbigh Coast, but was not acquired by MacBrayne's until 1929. She was renamed the Lochdunvegan following the company policy of naming new ships after Scottish Lochs, and from 1940 was used to carry cargo on the Islay service. She was withdrawn in 1948
