Ships History
The Iron hull single screw steamer SS CRAIGROWNIE was another from the early years of building at the Leith Shipyards of Ramage & Fergusons Shipbuilders, some of the finest looking ships ever built came from the shipyard at Leith.
The new shipyard was proving to be a profilic builder of new ships and the CRAIGROWNIE was the largest vessel built at the yard up to this time she was to be followed by many other fine vessels including a slightly larger sister ship which launched some eight months later in May of 1881
The SS CRAIGROWNIE was designed to trade in the Spanish fruit and mineral markets, she was to founder of the coast of Co Down Ireland only two months after her launch.
The unfortunate vessel was wrecked only two months later and this may even have been on her maiden voyage
We try here to give as full an account of her history as time and research permits, if you know of missing info
or you have any photographs of her, then please get in touch and we shall update her story as we go along.
