Maid for Dunbartonshire
The Loch Lomond Steamship Company is the charity which owns the Maid of the Loch, Loch Lomond’s Paddle Steamer. Founded in 1996, it has turned a derelict ship into a 2 star visitor attraction, welcoming around 15,000 people each year.
The charity has raised - and re-invested - over £2m in the Maid and infrastructure, the most notable achievement so far being the rebuild of the Category A listed Balloch Steam Slipway in 2006 and opened by HRH The Princess Royal. Now its even bigger challenge is to return the Maid to steam operation again. A £5.5m project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund which has promised £3.8m, is well underway with LLSC needing to raised the other £1.7m. The charity is optimistic that work on the ship’s refit can start next year, creating up to 25 new jobs and training places, bringing inward investment, and giving visitors a totally unique historic steamship experience in seeing the beauty of the bonnie banks.

I would highly recommend chamber membership to any Dunbartonshire business. The chamber works hard to make connections and generate profile for its members and SHBT have enjoyed a number of benefits over the years.Elizabeth Mackay, SHBT
