On 16th January 1890 when loaded with a cargo of timber she is reported to have stranded at Port McCook on the Kilbranan Sound although the official wreck record gives her position as N55.40.00 W5.25.00 which is in the Sound some 1.5 nm off Thundergay in Arran. Maybe she refloated and subsequently foundered ?

The photograph below shows her at Bowling on the Forth and Clyde Canal in May 1884
