Depending who you believe, Sir George may or may not have also liked the company of men
In 1913 Sir George replaced SY Rhouma with another Clyde built steam yacht the SY Triton, which he renamed SY Rhouma. This vessel was built at Ailsa Shipbuilding Company in Troon on the Clyde This was the very same yard that in 2000 built the MV Loch Nevis, the current ferry that serves Rum and the other Small Isles. Sadly the MV Loch Nevis was the last ship built at the Ailsa yard as it closed in 2000. The SY Rhouma was sold in 1920 but amazingly she is still afloat. In 1975 her steam engines were removed and replaced with diesel engines. Her current name is MY Madiz..
What a tour of Kinloch Castle we had! It is an incredible time capsule of Edwardian extravagance and opulence. The outbreak of WW1 in 1914 brought the heyday of Kinloch Castle to a close. Sir George died in 1939 and is buried in the family mausoleum at Harris in the west of the island. Lady Monica continued to visit Kinloch Castle at infrequent intervals. On one her last visits in 1954, aged 85 years, she drove herself over the rough 4x4 track to Harris to visit Sir George's tomb for one last time. Lady Monica, died in 1967 at 98 years of age and was also laid to rest in the Mausoleum. The family trustees then sold Rum and the Castle to the Nature Conservancy Council for £23,000. High in the hills above the Mausoleum there is a small loch. It is called Loch Monica.
