The Archibald Russell was built by Scott’s Ship Building and Engineering Co. Ltd in Greenock. She was the last sailing ship to be built on the Clyde. The vessel was built in 1905 and she sailed the world delivering timber, grain, nitrate, and coal to various ports in the UK, Germany, Spain, Australia, Brazil.

She was considered to be one of the last of the famous multi-masted Wind Jammers.
