The Lochmor in the Sound of Sleat

The Lochmor was designed for a particular route served by Caledonian MacBrayne, that taking in the Small Isles of Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna. She was launched in June 1979 and took over from the traditional steamer Loch Arkaig, providing a much improved facility for dealing with cargo, rather than cars. After twenty years of service on the Small Isles route, she was replaced by the much larger Lochnevis in 2000. The Lochmor also undertook trips to Portree, Kyle of Lochalsh and the Crowlin Islands. She is seen here sailing northeast up the Sound of Sleat, with the Five Sisters of Kintail in the background.

The photograph was taken by Duncan MacInnes for the Clan Donald Lands Trust.
