The sale of the Clyde waterbus PRIDE O' THE CLYDE was announced at the weekend, and she was taken out of the Clyde today. Her new owners are the Sir Walter Scott Trust, who will be transporting the vessel to Loch Katrine shortly. She will be used to offer cruises on the Loch while the steamship SIR WALTER SCOTT is having major work carried out on her during the next year. PRIDE O' THE CLYDE will be missed by the many enthusiasts of the river who supported her sailings between Glasgow and Braehead over the past six years. However, she will provide much needed income for her new owners, and hopefully will be well supported in her new role on Loch Katrine.

Is she going to be replaced on the Clyde? After going from Glasgow to Braehead in 2007 we went again this year to go in the opposite direction to be told the sailings had stopped. We have seldom been on a more interesting trip, great historical detail from a very knowledgable crew,lots to see and all in all a most enjoyable day out.
