Hi Alan,

Great to see a boat with something other than water all round it, and those hills make a great setting for it. Like it!

Best wishes Peter

Hi Peter This one is a regular runner up and down Loch Katrine.Info 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.She is also steam driven with Steam Recprocating engines.Best wishes Alan
