Other paddle steamer action can be seen with Maid of the Loch dating from 1953 sailing around Loch Lomond.

More Scottish paddle steamer action is shown around Forth and Tay.

We return to England along the Humber from Hull before finishing in London and the Thames among many paddle steamers including Isle of Arran of 1892, Golden Eagle of 1904, Medway Queen of 1924 plus many, many more.
