Ireckon that is Tintagel Castle in Cornwall. Union Castle had a "Tintagel Castle" but not a bulk carrier.

"Bamburgh Castle" was a bulk carrier, but that picture doesn't look like Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland.

I'm wracking my brains to find the name before the sun rises in Pommie Land.

I played football under Bamburgh Castle when I was at school and there was more than one castle in this area giving its name to a vessel

Thanks Gydinia - yes have visited Bamburgh in the past.Just remembered there was also a bulkie called "Alnwick Castle" but your picture doesn't show that either. I looked up "Dunstanburgh Castle" and found your photo - that's not really cheating, it's "research"! Did she have some association with Ben Line?
