MV Orcadia - Previously MV Saturn

I've been following the progress of the transition of the old Calmac ferry 'MV Saturn' as she undergoes the change to 'MV Orcadia'.

She is now owned by Pentland Ferries and will be utilised in fish farm work, and perhaps some offshore duties too.

She left the dry dock this afternoon and made the short trip round to the James Watt Dock.

She still has some work to be done but I expect she will be heading up the the Orkneys towards the end of next week.
