Down by the River (Clyde)

Haircut day today - so grabbed a few shots before the final cut.

Scot Explorer was last seen by me as she loaded timber in Buckie harbour earlier this month.

Stavros S Niarchos was preparing to sail and this gave me an opportunity to see some of the final crew training before she departed Greenock to sail to Lamlash

Two of Svitzer's tugs sailed out to assist in the berthing of Elisabeth Knutsen at the Finnart oil terminal.  Busy morning with a fair amount of river traffic including a submarine heading to Loch Goil.
