S.S. "Mabel", Loch Maree

A view of the small steam boat, SS 'Mabel', at Loch Maree.

The SS Mabel (length 13.7 metres) was built in 1882, and originally brought to Loch Maree in 1883 by Mr Hornsby, the owner of Gairloch and Loch Maree Hotels. Functioning as a ferry across the large loch, it was bought over by the ferry company MacBrayne's in 1887. The small ferry was in service until 1911, when she was moored up beside Loch Maree Hotel. Her remains were visible as late as 1937.
