Sir Walter Scott is a passenger service on the sheltered
waters of Loch Katrine. A link with a gentler era, she
is the last screw-driven steamship in service on Scotland's
inland waters. More than a symbol, the vessel is a part
of the nation's heritage and a lasting tribute to the skills
of her builders.
The Trossachs Pier, lies in the
shadow of the conical shape of the hill of Ben A'an is
where your cruise begins, sailing 8 miles to Stronachlachar
on the loch's Southwestern shore. The ship's schedule
also includes shorter one hour sailing in the afternoons.
Its passage takes the SS Sir Walter Scott close to historic
sites such as Ellen's Isle, Royal Cottage, Silver Strand,
Factor's Island and Portnellan, one of the burial places
of the Clan MacGregor - Rob Roy' birthplace.
