One of eight similar vessels built by MacGregor's in 1912/1913 for the grandly-named Coasting Motor Shipping Co Ltd of Glasgow. These were the first internal combustion engined lighters to be built on the canal but they wern't a success and by the late 20s all had been sold on

Being one of the 74 foot versions, Innisclora had to have her bow section fitted at Bowling after coming down the 66 foot length limited canal from Kirkintilloch.,

Her registry entry was closed in 1915 and she was believed sold on to the Russian Government in 1923
