The Vital Spark, Inveraray, is just what I need this Monday morning. This week I'll be travelling around the central belt of Scotland, Stirling, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Musselburgh... the peace of the weekend will be gone for another five days. Enjoy this one while it lasts.

The boat was immortalised in the BBC's 1960s series of the same name, following the adventures of master mariner Para Handy.

Nice shot Ewan - did it take you long to compose this one? Looks like you had more blue sky there than in Brighton today!!

It was a brilliant morning, although, typically, the clouds came along eventually. I'll tell more about Para Handy another time...

Love the shot too, the slight angle gives it a sailing feel! Good stuff!

The clyde puffer 'Eilean Eisdeal' has become the first official 'Vital Spark' of Glasgow. She was recently re-registered and sits proudly at the Inveraray Maritime Museum.
