Loch Lomond's Paddle Steamer

Maid of the Loch

The PS Maid of the Loch's Ship on the Slip programme continues for the second year running; while the ship is on the slipway, under restoration at Balloch, Loch Lomond.

Maid of the Loch will open their doors to the public every weekend until the end of the October. Visitors are welcomed to celebrate the much-loved Clyde-built paddle steamer and to immerse themselves in the glory days of Scottish industrial and maritime heritage.

For 2022 there is a brand-new model ship exhibition on board, which examines the lifelong passion and skill of local resident Lachie Stewart. This spectacular collection of ship models which Lachie has meticulously built over the last 60 years ranges from elegant paddle steamers to humble Clyde puffers and will be a visual treat for all visitors and a terrific addition to the season’s offering.

The impressive winch house, built in 1902, will be in operation monthly and audiences can also enjoy the Slipway Museum and shop cabin space which explores themes from the golden age of shipbuilding. Hard Hat Tour tickets are available to book on Eventbrite.

On site caterers Wild Highlands are returning this season with a new pier-side café which has the best views over the Loch.

The Maid of the Loch will be open to the public every weekend from Saturday 16th April to the end of October.
