Built for the Cyde Shipping Co
and engined in 1861 when sold on to Rintoul and Brebner of
Glasgow. Into the ownership of William Cowan of Glasgow in
1866 and then Steel & McCaskill of Glasgow in 1871 and a
J Steel in 1884. In 1896 she was bought by Wm
Allan of VCulross and in 1900 by Wm Thomson Rogers of
Dundee. Staying in Dindee, by 1904 she was owned by the Dundee
Sand & Lighterage Co.with whom she is thought to have remained
in service until 1935.
I have unearthed two reports of mishaps involving vessels
named "Dunglass" in the Firth of Forth area. The first is from
Loyds List of June 11th 1873 and records that on 7th June
1873 she ran aground and sank 100 yards from the shore
near North Berwick on the Forth while on passage to Berwick
upon Tweed with a cargo of pig iron. Her crew were
recorded as all having been saved.
The Fifeshire Advertiser of 24 September 1898 reports that
"There are 16 vessels ashore in the Firth of Forth, east
and west of Kirkcaldy. At Kinghorn: Dunglass, badly
damaged ". There is no further comment or description of
the final fate of any of the vessels involved.
no positive information to let me conclude that all are
the same "Dunglass" however as the name is not such a common
one there has to be a strong possibility that they are one and
