"Loch Broom" in full sail

"Loch Broom" was one of 25 ships built for the Loch Line, a Glasgow-based shipping company formed from the merger of the Glasgow Shipping Company and the General Shipping Company. Built in 1885, "Loch Broom" was a four-masted barque.

The Loch Line ceased business in 1911 and the "Loch Broom" was sold to Skibsakties Songdal in Norway and renamed Songdal. She was sunk by German submarine U-81 on 2 February 1917 whilst carrying a cargo of Maize from Buenos Aires to London.

The original of this painting has been conserved and is on display at Trinity House maritime museum in Leith.
