The steamer "Claymore" at Gairloch pier

This is the steamer Claymore at Gairloch pier.

Built by J & G Thomson at Clydebank in 1881, the Claymore was the first ship to be commissioned by David MacBrayne. She was used all year round, as an all-purpose vessel, mainly on the Glasgow-Stornoway route via Gairloch, Poolewe, Aultbea and Lochinver. From 1918 she concentrated on the Skye and mainland route carrying cargo, but was also used for 10-day passenger cruises.
