The Caledonian MacBrayne ferry ‘Lord of the Isles’, known affectionately as Lottie from the initial letters of her name, was built by Ferguson Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow in 1989. She replaced the ‘Columba’ and ‘Claymore’ on the Coll-Tiree and Barra-South Uist routes.

After only nine years in service, it was decided that a larger vessel was required on these routes and she was replaced by the ‘Clansman’ which carries twice as many vehicles. She still provides additional and relief sailings to Tiree and the Outer Isles.

This photograph of ‘Lord of the Isles’ docking at Gott Bay pier was taken by James Gentles in July 2003 using a remote-controlled camera on a kite.
