Stornoway was visited by the Dutch sailing boat ‘Oosterschelde’ on Saturday.

The ship, built in 1918, is a three-masted schooner from the Netherlands. She is the largest restored Dutch freightship and the only remaining Dutch three-masted topsail schooner. Her home port is Rotterdam.

She was photographed on her visit to Stornoway Harbour by Phil Rowe with the new MV Loch Seaforth in the background.
