Designed by Hercules Linton and built by Scott & Linton at Dumbarton in 1869 as a composite built extreme clipper ship for "Old White Hat" Jock Willis of London at a cost of £ 21/ton. Her dimensions are 212'5"×36'0"×21'0" and tonnage 963 GRT, 921 NRT, and 892 tons under deck.
Sailed on the China Tea Trade for a couple of seasons without distinguishing herself. Was moved over to the Australian wool trade when the tea trade was taken over by the steam ships. Here she proved to be a regularly fast sailer.

(The shipbuilders went bankrupt in the course of constructing the ship and it was completed by Denny Bros). Sold 1895 to Portuguese and renamed Ferreira. Bought in 1922 by Captain Dowman of Falmouth, named and restored and re-rigged to her original sail plan. Presented to the Thames Nautical Training College in 1938. Subsequently installed in a dry dock at Greenwich on permanent display. This vessel has probably had more written about her than any
other sailing ship, including 'The Log of the Cutty Sark' by Lubbock, see for full details up to 1938. The name is taken from a poem by Burns - Tam O'Shanter and the best translation appears to be 'short chemise'.
Built for the China trades and considered to be among the world's fastest sailing ships. she was transferred to the Australian trades in 1885-6, trading mainly to Sydney, until she made a few voyages to Brisbane in the 1890's prior to being withdrawn and sold foreign. See 'The Log of the cutty Sark', 'Colonial Clippers', 'China Clippers'].
