Tag: Maid of the Loch

PS Maid of the Loch is the last paddle steamer built in Britain.

She was launched from the Clyde shipyard of A. & J. Inglis on Thursday 5th March 1953 before being disassembled and transported by rail to Loch Lomond where she was re-assembled. She operated for 29 years before being allowed to fall in to a state of disrepair.

Maid of the Loch is in the process of being restored to full operation by the Loch Lomond Steamship Company. More information
