Built for Alexander Ross (later Light Shipping and Ross & Marshall) Stormlight is significant in that in 1891 she was lengthened to 86.3 ft, making her too big for the Forth and Clyde canal.

She would appear to have led an uneventful life, spending the entirety of it until the early 1930s with the same owners..
