Large numbers gather in Mallaig for funeral of Lachie Robertson

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Mallaig on Friday to bid fairwell to Lachie Robertson as the funeral procession made its way from St Columba’s Church of Scotland to the harbour. The hearse paused briefly beside his boat ‘Reul a’ Chuain’ before making the journey to Beoraid Cemetery in Morar, where a large gathering of his friends, many travelling from the islands, joined family members for the interment service by Rev Stewart Gourlie.
