Photograph of the `Claymore`s tender transferring passengers past the sunken `Loch Seaforth`

Colour photograph of the tender craft from the ferry `Claymore` passing the sunken `Loch Seaforth` on its way from Gott pier to the ferry with a load of passengers. When the `Loch Seaforth` sank by the pier in 1973, the Claymore could not berth alongside and so passengers had to be transferred between the ferry and pier by the Claymore`s tender.

Photograph of the ferry `Claymore` with its tender alongside in 1973

Colour photograph of the ferry `Claymore` with its tender alongside. In 1973, the ferry `Loch Seaforth` sank next to Gott pier after hitting rocks in Gunna Sound. Until it was refloated, the `Claymore` could not berth alongside the pier and so passengers were transferred from/to the ferry by motor launch. Cargo and livestock was taken on the smaller cargo ship `Glencloy` which could berth between the sunken ferry and the pier.
