Assumed to be part of the Dumfries and Galloway exhibit. After an initial research and feasibility study undertaken by John Bowie (a retired marine engineer) there was a Work experience /Youth training scheme devised, also supervised by John, to build a replica of the first known steamboat, which sailed on Dalswinton Loch in 1788. It was built in a small warehouse in High St. (Maxwellton), Dumfries and then displayed at the Garden Festival. After the festival it returned to Dumfries and was in the grounds of Dumfries and Galloway College (at that time in Heathall). At some point since then it was moved to the Dalswinton Estate (just North of Dumfries) where it is exhibited as part of the estate.
