Quest for Adventure

The Cruise ship 'Quest For Adventure' departed Greenock this afternoon as she headed to the Arctic Circle on a 'National Trust for Scotland' cruise adventure.

She arrived early this morning, and can carry up to 446 passengers.

Unfortunately thee  poor spell of so called summer weather we are experiencing continued as she left in the cold and grey of the Clyde.

Strathclyde Fire & Rescue Museum

A visit to the recently opened Strathclyde Fire & Rescue Preservation Museum in Greenock Municipal Buildings.

The premises are the original Fire Station in Greenock many years ago.

It has been created and is run by volunteers and much credit goes to them for what they have achieved.

It is a reminder of times past and of the brave men who have given their lives over the years for the safety and peace of mind of the general public.

Would recommend a visit - you will enjoy.
