Castlebay in Herring Season

This photograph was taken by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823-93) and was used to illustrate talks he gave on Highland history. The following description is taken from Washington Wilson's own lecture notes.

Besides kelp making, at which old and young join, there is lobster fishing, and Loch Boisdale is often the scene of all the bustle and excitement accompanying a good herring season.
