SS Sir Walter Scott at Trossachs Pier.

By Tooma
SS Sir Walter Scott at Loch Katrine
Loch Katrine is the lake in the title of Sir Walter Scott's The Lady of the Lake. It is a freshwater loch roughly 8 miles long by 2/3 of a mile wide, running the length of Strath Gartney. The loch is owned by Scottish Water and is the primary water reservoir for much of the city of Glasgow and the surrounding area.

Because of the danger of pollution to the drinking water of Glasgow, oil-fired vessels are not permitted to sail on Loch Katrine. Instead a biodiesel fueled, steam-powered boat named the SS Sir Walter Scott does. It is the oldest screw driven ship still running in Scotland; just over 100 years old.

The other versions are a couple of views and some shots of the Jazz Pack, who played for us. Fine players all.
