Named after Scotland’s much loved poet and author Sir Walter Scott, our iconic 115 year old steamship is one of Scotland’s major visitor attractions.
Built by Denny Bros at Dumbarton, the steamship’s journey to Loch Katrine was not easy. She was
meticulously dismantled before being transported by barge to Inversnaid on Loch Lomond and then by horse drawn carts to Stronnachlachar where she was rebuilt and first sailed on the 1st April 1900.
The steamship has undergone a number of changes over the years, including a new passenger saloon, and although still powered by her original 1898 Mathew Paul triple expansion steam engine, her new boilers, replaced in 2007 use environmentally friendly bio-fuel.
Season after season, the Steamship Sir Walter Scott, which provides full disabled access and facilities, continues to welcome cyclists, hikers, families and international tourists on board, to enjoy the stunning scenery of Loch Katrine.
