Hamish Dunbar remembers the RMS Ailsa

Through the year she carried mail between Cromarty and Invergordon and no doubt passengers too. During the summer months she would occasionally come over to Nairn and folk, especially holiday makers during Glasgow Fair week, could have a day out in Cromarty and I think she always arrived on Nairn Games Day with folk from the Cromarty/Invergordon area who wanted to attend the games or visit relations in Nairn. I think that maybe the tide dictated when she could come since the west pier side of the river was dry at low tide.
The return fare cost a shilling. 1/- old money


Hamish has sent us the above pictures of Capt Watson and The RMS Ailsa. Thanks Hamish
