The Ochtertyre was an iron barque built by Robert Duncan & Co., Port Glasgow in 1885 for Hugh Hogarth of Ardrossan. Her master was William Reardon Smith who was later to become a shipowner at Cardiff and the philanthropic treasurer of the National Museum of Wales. Sold to Norwegian owners in 1910 the Ochtertyre was lost by collision with an iceberg a year later.
