P.S MAID OF THE LOCH - Two Ways To Paddle!

The cold weather of a cloudy January day didn't seem to deter these students of North Glasgow College having fun and the odd splash in this training exercise at Drumkinnon Bay on Loch Lomond in Scotland. The superb backdrop is that of the historic 1953 Paddle Steamer 'Maid of the Loch' at her long-term berth at Balloch Pier. Although she is in a static condition at the moment , she has been passed by the MCA to steam again , but due to financial constraints , it is not known when this event will happen , hopefully not too long in the future. Recent news reports has said that she could be sailing again c2018
