Inchinnan Bascule Bridge

Hearing that a barge was to go up the River Cart I headed to Renfrew.

My expectations were that the Inchinnan Bascule Bridge would open to allow the barge to transit, but not all went to plan.

Unsure why, but the move was deferred.

I carried on up to Braehead to catch a shot of the Dutch tug that brought the barge to our waters.

I also took a few of the bridge itself. I've crossed this bridge so many times in my car but never stopped to get a few images, so this at least made my trip worthwhile.
