Maid of the Loch makes two circuits of Loch Lomond.
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
