Paddle Steamer at Corpach

An old postcard entitled Ben Nevis from Corpach. The date is an estimate as the lighthouse on the pier was built in 1912 and isn't built yet.See also picture #58 picture #64

I have seen in a book a similar view of the same Steamer and the date was given as 1878, Note the twin funnel so it isnt The Gondolier!

I think the steamer is the Mountaineer 1852 to 1889. This pic shows her after she was lengthened in 1876.
