S.S. 'Lochness'

This photograph shows the TSS 'Lochness' which was built for MacBrayne's in 1929, and took over the Mallaig - Kyle of Lochalsh - Stornoway route after the SS 'Sheila' ran aground in 1927. The 'Lochness' fuelled at Kyle, and a large oil storage tank had to be built there. It became a prominent feature of the pier.

The 'Lochness' was sold in the 1955 to Italian owners, then in 1958 to Greek owners. She was renamed 'Myrtidiotissa' and ended her working days in the Aegean Islands.
