Lots Happening Around Greenock Docks Today

Today was always going to be busy on the River Clyde, and Greenock docks.

Started when I got the bulk carrier 'Panorea' as she passed Port Glasgow bound for Glasgow.

Then back home I caught the tanker 'Furenas' as she headed upriver to Rothesay Dock in Clydebank.

Then down to the docks and with thanks to the owner of 'MV Saturn' - Andrew - I got some shots as she left the Garvel dry dock and went around to the James Watt Dock to berth for more maintenance work.

The tall ship 'Stavros S Niarchos' completed the same short journey.

We also had tugs and the SEPA vessel 'Minna' arrive at the James Watt Dock.
