Sorry Jim. I believe the TINTO HILL was built of iron as Woody records.
If you had asked me, I would have said steel, given that Russell seemed to have gone over exclusively to steel in 1887 but the Lloyd's Registers are quite specific about this, from all references I've seen.
It occurs to me that Russell might have had a stockpile of iron in his yard and, who knows, might have given a discount to the owner to allow Russell to off-load this old stuff :)

Incidentally, there is no mention of the hull material in the Glasgow Herald report but that may have been a cub reporter on that day because the name is given as TINTO HALL, for R. W. Dickson and the tonnage given specifically as 2080 net register, none of which can be supported. If you can elaborate on that I would be more than grateful.

Hello Alba
You were quite right
I have checked Lloyd's Registers and she is of iron construction [the World Ship Society yard list for Russels wrongly shows steel]
The 1891 Lloyds shows the tonnages as 2,144 grt 2,002 under the deck 2,067 nrt
The name is shown as "Tinto Hill"
best Jim
