First registered at Greenock in 1860 to Robert Henry of Greenock. Nothing is known about her until her registration was cancelled March 1877 after she was lost 1 mile west of Dunbar while on passage from Gourdon to Campbeltown with a cargo of barley. She was reportedly blown ashore during a force 9 northerly gale and by the following day she had completely broken up. Her master, D.McMillan and his 3 crew were saved by the local lifeboat. At this time she was owned by J&J Hay of Glasgow.
