I remember Mount battock in 60,s as a small well kept steam collier. Completely black funnel and would be around 500 - 1000t.

Shame about the site if it was to close.

Have an old 8 mm film of MB sailing from Granton, she was on a regular run for
coal, Aberdeen-Granton-Aberdeen. Am endeavouring to transfer, via scanner
some of these old films depicting Leith, Granton and other worldly ports, it is a
bit fiddley but who known!!!........Then put it on Ships Nostalgia...if still afloat.
