Hi Jim,
My grandfather sailed as chief on board the 'Scottish King' and I am sur the 'Scottish Queen',do you know if these are sister ships.
Whilst he was chief on the Scottish King,Princess Anne paid a visit in Aberdeen.

There is a picture in a faroese book, with SCOTTISH PRINCESS standing on the rocks of Skarvatangi, 1977. I just can't come in hug. I have looked through every book, but can't find it .
