Isle of Mull - Ferry

The 'Isle of Mull' ferry arrived in Greenock this morning.

 She berthed in the James Watt Dock and will transfer to the Garvel dry dock for her annual winter maintenance.

She canted to reverse in, but aborted the entry and left again. Then she canted again and this time went straight in to the James Watt Dock with little room on her port side.
