History

Built in 1910 for Roderick Gordon of Kisghorn, CLAN GORDON fished mainly for herring in the Minches and at some time was fitted with an engine. In the 1950s, she moved to Gairloch and later worked for the Northern Lighthouse Board as a tender to the Rona lighthouse. She was converted to a yacht in the 1960s. She was later restored to almost original appearance in the 1990s and was sold to her present owner in 2003. Some planking and re-nailing was carried out. She is one of the few Loch Fyne skiffs still afloat with her original lug sail rig.
