Built by Burrell for their own account using some parts from their original 1869 built Hercules .. On the night of the 1881 census, 3rd April, she was recorded as docked at Grangemouth with a crew of three under her master David Hendrie of Kirkintilloch. In 1884 she was sold on to John Hay of Glasgow. In 1886 she moved on into the ownership of Andrew McClelland of Glasgow. By 1900 she was back in Hay's possession but had disappeared from the MNL by 1904.
