STAR OF SCOTLAND was built by Hall Russell for Walker Steam Fishing Co. of Aberdeen, along with sister ship STAR OF ISLES to replace the old steam trawlers with these new diesels. STAR OF SCOTLAND and STAR OF ISLES fished for the company until 1963 when both vessels were bought by Shipper A. R. Eldar.

STAR OF SCOTLAND and STAR OF ISLES were experimented on the main trawl winch was covered in for crew protection but did not prove a success as no-one followed it up. Walker Fishing and its fleet was bought over by unknown company and STAR OF SCOTLAND was renamed ADMIRAL CUNNINGHAM until 1965 when she was sold to Peter Sleight Trawlers, Grimsby. In 1973 she was sold and renamed ARCTIC ATTACKER. Then listed in 1979 Lloyd's Register as MEDITERRANEAN ATTACKER for Dimitrios Palmost, S.A. Greece, until 1982/83 Lloyd's Registers which lists the MEDITERRANEAN ATTACKER as being owned by Seagreen Compania Naviera S.A. Panama.
