The M.V. `Scottish Coast` sitting at Donegal Quay awaiting her maiden voyage, in 1957. She arrived from her builders Harland & Wolff, Belfast, painted in the colours of the Belfast Steamship Company to cover on the overnight Liverpool route, for the `Ulster Monarch` which had gone for a three month overhaul. I sailed on this ship, not on its maiden voyage but certainly on the first week she was covering the route. A splendid ship she was. Even though I had first class accommodation, I can recall the overbearing smell of fresh paint. She also served on the Belfast - Glasgow route as well as the Glasgow - Dublin overnight service. Sold by the Coast Line Group in 1969 she was converted into a cruise liner by Greeks. She was finally broken up in India in 2002 after a remarkable career of 45 years. True testament to those who built her.   :)
I joined her in may 1957 and stayed until after she went on Glasgow-Dublin. I joined her sister Irish Coast then on Belfast-Ardrossan. Lovely ships indeed.

Yes, I remember going over to Ardrossan on the `Irish Coast` one summer. Another well appointed ship. :)

Built by Harland & Wolff, Belfast in 1952 for the Coast Lines Group. She was sold in 1968 to Greeks who converted here to a cruise liner. She was sold a few times after that finishing up in S.E. Asia where in 1989 she was lost during a typhoon. She lasted 37 years and was a credit to those who built her.  :)
