Saint Ninian was built by D. and W. Henderson and Company, of Glasgow and launched on 21 June 1894. She was operated by the Saint Ninian Steamship Company, Ltd. (A. Mackay & Co.), also based in Glasgow.
On 7 February 1917 she was bound for the Tees carrying a cargo of iron pyrites from Port Kelah. She was three nautical miles off Whitby when she came across the SS Corsican Prince, which had just been torpedoed by Theodor Schultz's UB-34. The Saint Ninian came alongside to take off survivors, but was herself torpedoed by UB-48 and sank with the loss of fifteen men.
