Vital Spark

Vital Spark

The Vital Spark, a Clyde puffer tied up at Inveraray Pier on the western shore of Loch Fyne, near its head in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The Clyde puffer is a type of small coal-fired, single-masted cargo ship built mainly on the Forth and Clyde canal which provided a vital supply link around the west coast and Hebrides islands of Scotland. Named after the short stories that Scottish writer Neil Munro wrote about the Vital Spark and her captain Para Handy, which produced three television series. This particular puffer was originally the Vic 72, which was then renamed the Eilean Eisdeal before being re-registered as the Vital Spark (in honour of Munro’s wonderful stories) in 2006. Behind the Pier you can just see the Arctic Penguin, originally a lightship for the Irish Lighthouse Service, now a floating Maritime Museum.
