PS Waverley made her first visit to Rothesay of 2016 on Saturday, May 28.
This year is a special year for Paddle Steamer Waverley - it marks 70 years since her launch in 1946. Waverley’s keel was laid on December 27, 1945 but due to material shortages after the war, she was not ready for launch until October 2, 1946.
It wasn’t until the following year on January 20, 1947 that she was towed to Greenock for the installation of her boiler and engines. Finally she made her maiden voyage on June 16, 1947 and started what was to become a very long career.
