LORD OF THE ISES at Gourock

Seen berthing at Gourock this afternoon, rather unusually stern-first, is Caledonian MacBrayne's 1989-built ferry LORD OF THE ISLES. Normally vessels such as this berth bow-in, but for several weeks she has been sailing with her bow visor sealed up following technical difficulties with it. She arrived today from Oban, and is on the Clyde to have her annual survey and overhaul at the Garvel drydock. Following her brief call at Gourock, where she landed cars belonging to her crew, she headed for the James Watt Dock.
