Sheep in Somerled Square, Portree

Somerled Square in the centre of Portree takes its name from the 12th century warrior chief of the MacDonalds. In this photograph, probably not an uncommon sight, sheep are being herded down Wentworth Street, possibly to the brae leading to the pier for shipment to the sales. The large building in centre right is currently the Bank of Scotland, and the War Memorial, unveiled in 1922 is visible in the centre of the Square
