This was the first ship I ever steered. As a teenager, my school friend's Dad was skipper on the Maid of Ashton. I first took the wheel between Craigendoran and Kilcreggan, before returning across the river Clyde to Gourock.

The other highlight of these trips was that we used to be treated to 'High Tea' with the Officers before leaving Craigendoran.

My pal was named Finlay and his Old Man was Murdo Campbell, originally from Carloway on the Isle of Lewis, but living in Greenock.

Thanks for the picture EMMESSTEE. I thought the Ashton had gone to Greek owners for conversion! That was certainly the fate of at least one of her sister Maids - Skelmorlie, Argyll or Cumbrae.

In her present location she is a favorite place for MoD receptions. MoD Main Building is about 200 yards upstream from her mooring.

She has been at that mooring since before the footbridge was built Coastie. She will probably need to lower her masts and leave on a low tide for her next docking

Used to sail on her when on the Clyde. Amazed that I have walked past her many times and did not recognize her.
