Two ferrymen

Two rather smartly dressed boatmen approach the shore, no doubt to pick up more passengers to cross to Skye from Kyle of Lochalsh. Steamers were the main means of transporting passengers and freight up and down the west coast of Scotland in the first half of the 20th century, with smaller vessels such as this rowing boat at Kyle of Lochalsh ferrying goods and people over shorter distances
