Thanks for all the "Saints" of my era Roymuir, particularly this one.

Would that not be the second 'St. Clair'?
Pre 1960 photo?
Anyway, it would be hard to find a better looking ship.

She was indeed the Clair when built and became the Magnus after 1960 when the 3rd Clair was delivered from Ailsa Troon. She replaced the 1924 built St Magnus as the "Weekend boat" depart Leith Thursday, Aberdeen Friday arrive Kirkwall Saturday morning 0700ish then depart 1300 for Lerwick. Depart Lerwick Sunday night spend Monday in Kirkwall dep 1700 - Aberdeen Tuesday then down to Leith Tuesday night - a civilised way of travel.
