Old Photograph Royal Mail Ship Plover Loch Alsh Scotland
Old photograph of the Royal Mail Ship Plover approaching Balmacara village on the north shore of Loch Alsh near Kyle of Lochalsh, across from Isle of Skye, Scotland. Plover was built in 1904, was a hard working vessel used during World War I on the mail route between Oban, the inner and outer isles, and Kyle of Lochalsh. Later it was refitted, renamed the Loch Aline, and was requisitioned as an examination vessel during World War II. Sold again after the war to Irish owners, she reverted to carrying cargo, and was scrapped in 1951.
