Steam yacht 'Killarney' at Ullapool

This postcard shows the twin screw steam yacht 'Killarney' at Ullapool. The advertisement at the bottom of the card reads:

'Cruises through the Western Highlands of Scotland.
Coast Lines, Limited, (Langlands Services), 19, Castle Street, Liverpool.'

Ullapool is situated on the northern shore of Loch Broom. It began in 1788 as a planned village, designed for the British Fisheries Society by Thomas Telford. Although the herring fishing industry declined in the 19th century, Ullapool continues to thrive because of its harbour. Today it is the terminus of the car ferry service from Stornoway and a popular tourist centre.
