Artist's Description

According to a local contact this is a half-size Sgoth Niseach (Ness Boat). The last full size Sgoth Niseach (Ness Boat) to be built ‘An Sulaire’ was built by Master Boat Builder, John Murdo Macleod in 1994.
According to the An Sulaire Trust Site (2015 website no longer available) “These boats were used in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by the fishermen of north east Lewis to win a living from the sea.” John Mordo also built many half size Sgoth Niseach. It is unclear whether this one was built by him. Update 2012: The boat was seemingly damaged a couple of years ago and is no longer in Ness harbour.
