Ben Nevis from Corpach with PS Pioneer

PS Pioneer was built by Barr & McNab of Paisley in 1844 for the Glasgow Steam Packet Company. She initially served on the Glasgow to Ardrishaig summer service until 1852 when she switched to Oban. Her main destinations were Mull, Iona, Staffa and Fort William although she occasionally ventured as far north as Gairloch. She underwent extensive renovations in the mid-1870s which included the addition of a second funnel. After a long life she was broken up in August 1895.
