She was built by William Denny and Brothers of Dumbarton for the London and North Western Railway in 1902.

She was requisitioned by the Admiralty as an Armed boarding steamer in 1914.

She was renamed TSS Menevia in 1920. In 1928 she was sold to the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company and scrapped later that year by T. W. Ward.
