SS Sir Walter Scott by Gordon Bauwens.


SS Sir Walter Scott by Gordon Bauwens.

The handsome steamship, Sir Walter Scott, which sails Loch Katrine in the Trossachs, is named after the author who highlighted the area in his poem of 1810, The Lady of the Lake. Since then, this tranquil wooded loch mirroring the majestic mountain Ben Venue at its easterly end, has been popular with visitors from all over the world. Cruising on SS Sir Walter Scott provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to share the authors passion for this scenic jewel in the heart of Scotland. When she entered service in 1900, this elegant little steamer - measuring 110 feet by 19 feet beam and weighing 110 tons - was not particularly unusual, with many inland lochs offering similar pleasure sailings. Sir Walter Scott began life at William Denny & Brothers in Dumbarton, but was not launched from the shipyard. She was taken instead in knocked-down form by barge up Loch Lomond, then overland by horse-drawn carts to Loch Katrine for re-assembly. Now, she is unique as the only surviving screw-steamer in regular passenger service in Scotland, her sleek hull still powered by the original triple-expansion steam engine. As Loch Katrine is also Glasgow Citys water supply, every effort was taken in her design to minimise pollution. Indeed, it is for this reason she still operates as a solid-fuel burning steamer while most comparable vessels have converted to diesel propulsion. To sail on board the Sir Walter Scott with the dramatic visual backdrop slowly unfolding, the gentle rhythms of the almost-silent steam engine and soft lapping water, makes for an enchanting experience few ever forget.
