Commonwealth Flotilla - Glasgow Bound

After many months of planning the Commonwealth Flotilla left the James Watt Dock this morning.

The vessels made their way to Customhouse Quay where they turned and lined up for the start.

Calmac's new ferry - MV Lochinvar - lead the way as they started their journey to Glasgow.

It's believed this is the largest flotilla ever to make this trip.

As you would expect there was a happy atmosphere around and they got a good send off from the crowd that turned up to cheer them on their way.
