Lady Clare133 viewsThe steamer Lady Clare takes on passengers at Garelochhead pier. She was built in 1891 by J.MacArthur & Company of Paisley for the North British Railway Company’s service up the Gareloch from Craigendoran, and latterly Greenock. A smaller version of Lucy Ashton but with equally neat proportions, she was 180 feet long with a beam of 19 feet. After also serving in Derry from 1906 and in World War One as a minesweeper based in Belfast, she was broken up at Dumbarton in 1928. Image c.1900.

She began on the Holy Loch run but later became more familiar on the Gareloch service from Craigendoran. She remained on the Clyde throughout both world wars. She made her last run in February 1949. Her stripped down hull saw further experimental use by the British Shipbuilding Research Association, including being fitted with a jet engine.
