Galley Aileach of the Lord of the Isles Galley Trust being towed up to Corpach for The Crossing 2009. They had to leave Dunstaffnage at 04:30h to get through Corran Narrows with the tide.

From the website
"Galley Aileach is the first replica of a Hebridean birlinn (or West Highland Galley) ever built. She is forty feet long, clinker built in larch on oak frames. Her beam is ten feet and she draws two feet. She has sixteen oars and one square sail, hoisted on a yard and controlled by sheets and braces."
