Old Photograph Clyde Puffer Gael Brodick Island Of Arran Scotland

Old photograph of the Clyde Puffer named Gael at the old pier in Brodick on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. The Clyde puffer is essentially a type of small steamboat which provided a vital supply link around the west coast and Hebrides islands of Scotland, stumpy little cargo ships that have achieved almost mythical status thanks largely to the short stories Neil Munro wrote about the Vital Spark and her captain Para Handy. Brodick has the Isle of Arran's main ferry terminus which connects Brodick to Ardrossan on the mainland. The ferries are operated by Caledonian MacBrayne. MV Caledonian Isles plies this route year round, with MV Isle of Arran providing additional sailings during the summer. Brodick is a popular holiday destination and a base for hill walking. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
