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.
