"The Skylark sailed
from Portobello Beach from the mid-1950s until the early-1960s.
"I recently found
out that the Skylark was owned and operated by Edward Brown and his
brother from the Starlyburn Boatyard, across the
Forth in Burntisland.
The Skylark was
originally purchased and converted to a passenger ferry by the Browns.
Ed Brown died a few years ago after relocating across here to Oban
to run another boatyard at Gallanach."
