The Steam Slipway is a vital part of the Maid's story as it is the only means of taking The Maid of the Loch out of the water for inspection or repair. Come and enjoy stoking the boiler or hauling on the ropes or maybe blowing the whistle!
The Steam Sipway is located close to The Maid of the Loch and was built in 1902 and used until 1989, when it fell into disrepair. As a Grade A listed building it attracted some generous funding and with imput from our volunteers, it was rebuilt and officially opened by The Princess Royal in 2006.
Our volunteers have the engine 'In Steam' during the summer weekends and are delighted to explain how such a small engine can pull the Maid at 555 gross tons up the slipway and out of the water.
