BRO ATLAND inbound

Back from Belfast, and inward bound for Finnart for another cargo of oil products, Brostrom's 1999-built ship BRO ATLAND catches the early sun as she passes Cloch Lighthouse this morning. The oil terminal at Finnart has two berths, one of which was modified a number of years ago to allow tankers to load there as well as discharging oil cargoes for the BP refinery at Grangemouth. Pipelines run across the width of Scotland connecting the deepwater terminal on Loch Long to the refinery.
