Queen's Baton Relay - Inverclyde

Today was the turn of the people of Inverclyde to take part in the Queen's Baton Relay ahead of the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

An early start at McInroy's Point in Gourock where the Baton arrived by ferry from Hunter's Quay.

Once ashore the journey began as the convoy headed to Inverkip.

I set off in the opposite direction and met up with the convoy at Quarrier's Village.

After that I met up with them again at Newark Castle for my final shots of the day.
