Does anyone have any information about a vessel called Scottish Maid registered or built in Portsoy 1864.

The 1922 almanac shows a vessel of this name in Portsoy. She's owned by H Addison but is only 2 tons. Could that be her. If not I'll look further back.

I've also found a Scottish Maid, INS 775, 42ft, in Nairn in 1889.
