Loch Seaforth sets forth

Back in 1970 we visited Scotland, mostly travelling by train but using bus and ferry when appropriate. One ferry trip was from Mallaig to Kyle of Lochalsh which enabled us to arrive on the west coast via the West Highland line and return east again on the Kyle line. Planning our itinerary in those pre-internet days involved a lot of library work where timetables were available. We just had time to fit in a crossing to Kyleakin on Skye from where we saw Loch Seaforth departing on the next leg of her journey.


It is clearly dramatic scenery as we look back to the mainland with the ferry setting out.

These days, of course, the Skye Bridge takes you over the sea to that island. Not everybody likes it, but I’m a fan.
