Built for the Leith, Hull and Hamburg Steam Packet Co., owned by James Curry of Leith, she was employed like her sisters in carrying cargo along the Forth & Clyde Canal between Port Dundas in Glasgow and Leeith Docks on the Forth, feeding cargo to and from her owner's ocean-going vessels.

By 1915 she is registered as being motor powered. This must make her one of the earliest such conversions. I have no further information on her.
