Ships Monthly’s Youngest Reader Visit


Scotline had a visit on Saturday 25th April from Finan Liddle, Ships Monthly’s youngest reader, who came up to Rochester to visit us. Finan was taken around the terminals and saw the Scot Carrier and Scot Mariner as they were discharging at Scotline Terminal (Medway) and Scotline Terminal (Transit) respectively.

After reading the article about Ships Monthly trying to find their youngest reader, Scotline invited Finan, his father Wil and great grandfather Peter to come and visit us. Recognising the lack of young people coming into the industry, we wanted to offer him the chance to come and get hands-on with a working vessel and also to encourage his interest in shipping further.

Thanks to Finan and his family for coming to visit us and we hope this further encourages his interest in shipping.

Emily’s Running The London Marathon


Our work colleague Emily is training hard for her run in The Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 26th April on behalf of ‘Children with Cancer UK’.

Emily has said she is very grateful for this “opportunity of a lifetime”.  The London marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race.  The course is a grueling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

We are extremely proud of Emily and ask you to show your support by donating to a wonderful cause.  Emily will be delighted to see any donations coming in, no matter how small, to encourage her in her endeavour.  If you have already sponsored her, thank you very much, if you haven’t yet, please make your contribution via:
