County of Kinroos

A 4 masted shipEdit

200 feet long, and quite a beauty as evidenced by the picture.

The vessel was ship rigged with royal sails above double top- and single topgallant sails. County of Kinross was launched in January of 1878 at the shipyard of Barclay; Curle & Co.; Glasgow; for R. & J.
