Built to replace the 1899 Druid which had sunk earlier in 1905. In 1912 she ran aground near Ballycastle, N.Ireland, but was successfully made seaworthy and refloated. She served with the Admiralty at Scapa Flow during the first World War and in 1919 returned to service with J & J Hay.

She was sold in 1955 and renamed "Kippen" before being scrapped in 1959
