'SS Sir Walter Scott' Steam Boat On Loch Katrine,Scotland. by 


This is what Loch Katrine offers along side the beautiful surroundings it also features a very old Steam Boat. Seen to the left in this image.

‘SS Sir Walter Scott’ is named after the 19th Century poet who wrote “The Lady of the Lake” and is the last of a series of ships to ply the loch. The story goes that the first steamer on Loch Katrine was sent to the bottom by the sailors who had been employed to row the previous craft!

She is 110 feet long, 19 feet wide and weighs 115 tons, and has sailed the waters of Loch Katrine since 1900. S.S. Sir Walter Scott was built by Denny Bros Ltd at Dumbarton on the River Clyde, transported by barge up Loch Lomond and then dragged by horse-drawn cart up the unbelievably steep hill from Inversnaid and then overland to Stronachlachar at the west end of Loch Katrine where she was re-assembled and launched.

Thanks for stopping by and i hope you enjoyed this image of the boats of Loch Katrine.

Welcome to my beautiful world….
Scotland has such beautiful scenery and I try to capture those wonderful scenes along my travels. You will very often find me on the moors or soaking up the atmosphere of one of the many Lochs Scotland has to offer.
I also have a love of flowers and have a selection of fine art florals in my portfolio. Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my world….

    a lovely moody photo of Loch Katrine it is so beautiful up there

  • Yeah its lovely there, i see from your website you have visited Scotland. I also notice that you have images of Cheddar Gorge which is not far from where i am from. I come from from Somerset, although lived in Scotland for the last 10 years, so brought back some child hood memories seeing them. Thanks for your comments Tony :)
