Workers at Gairloch Sawmill, 1910

A group photograph of workers at Gairloch Sawmill, taken on 3 September 1910. The date of the photograph has been written on the large circular saw blade, right of centre.

A small fishing and crofting community on the north-west coast of the Highlands, Gairloch derives its name from the Gaelic for 'short loch' and is located on Flowerdale Bay, a sheltered inlet which has been in the past, and still remains, an important anchorage on the west coastline for fishing boats and yachts.
