Are you sure that this is St Sunniva (I)? This looks like the St Clair (I). She entered service in 1868.

I am no expert on North Company ships CED, but P&O say that this is a pic of the first ST Sunniva. Please see https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=2768 for more information about her.
The first North Company cruise was undertaken by the converted ferry St Rognvald. St Sunniva was built for and used exclusively for cruising until 1908. For these duties she carried her own steam launch to take the passengers ashore. This can be seen moored near the stern of the ship in this photo.

If you have any other info I will be most interested.

Thank you CED. I have followed your advice and found photo M00098 on the Shetland Museum site. This is of St Sunniva (1) in Brassay Sound. The P&O photo has been cropped from M00098. This seems to prove that the ship in this photo is St Sunniva (1) in her cruise ship configuration, before additional accommodation was added for ferry duties.

Pleasure Fred. Did you see the pictures of her aground at the east side of Mousa? Sad sight.

I did indeed CED. I agree a very sad sight, especially those of her breaking up.
