Maid of the Loch Appeal Launched

The Maid to the Loch was first lowered into the waters of Loch Lomond on 5th March 1953 having been built at the Pointhouse yard of A & J Inglis Glasgow. It was yesterday (5th March 2013) that a public appeal for funds to return the Maid to service on Loch Lomond was launched. The appeal for £4.9M to restore the ship to service was launched at Balloch.
