LOCH DUNVEGAN at Gourock

Following two weeks at the Garvel Drydock a few miles upriver at Greenock, Caledonian MacBrayne's LOCH DUNVEGAN moved to her operator's Gourock headquarters this afternoon, prior to her returning to service on the short crossing between Colintraive and Rhubodach in a few days time. She is seen at the berth known as the 'top wires', so-called due to the heavy wires which run out to anchors several yards off the quayside. These are used for hauling vessels clear of the berth face if they are lying there for any length of time. JUPITER is approaching the car ferry berth on her 1450 sailing from Dunoon.
