"St Ola" (1951, 750 grt) North of Scotland Orkney and Shetland S N Co. Stromness-Scrabster service. Unusual feature of this and other North Co motor passenger vessels (Earl of Zetland (1939), St Ninian (1950) and St Clair (1960), was that they were only single screw.

Odd that North Co should revert to single screw arrangement for St Clair.
