Entry of the fleet

Nice pics Arnish, we saw the bottom boat whilst we were in Stornoway during the week, but weren't quite sure what type it was ( and my husband professes to be an islander! I'll freely admit to being a landlubber and thereby clueless when it comes to boats)

Am informed that the bottom boat is in fact a "sgoth niseach", and I think it's called An sulaire. Corrections welcome of course. A sgoth is a traditional fishing boat from Ness [hence the adjective "niseach"].

Is sgoth gaelic for skiff?
