St. Clair II off Buchan Ness

The SS "St. Clair" (II) is pictured heading into the teeth of a north-easterly gale as she begins her trip north from Aberdeen to Lerwick, with the Buchan Ness lighthouse visible on her port bow. The painting is 24 x 18 inches in size, and is in oils on hardboard. It was bought from an exhibition in the Shetland Museum and Archives gallery in early 2009.
