The PS Waverley at Portree

This photo shows the Paddle Steamer (PS) Waverly entering Portree, Skye. The PS Waverly entered service in 1947 and was famous for being the last paddle steamer built for Clyde service. The ship was named after Sir Walter Scott's romantic historical novel, Waverly. Between the years 2000 and 2003, the ship was refitted and restored to match its original 1947 design. The PS Waverly is still currently in active service along the coast of Britain.
