Owned by J Gardner & Sons, coal merchants, of Kirkintilloch. Lizzie Gardner was lost on 30th January 1881 when she grounded 6 miles south of Girvan, at Lendalfoot, whilst on passage from Glasgow to Stranraer with a cargo of coal.

One report has her named at launch as the "Eliza of Kirkintilloch" however no such vessel appears in the building list for Hay's and so this must, at least for the time being, remain unconfirmed.
