Although shown on ClydeSights a few days ago, this is a closer view of Strathclyde Marine Policing Unit's converted 'Arun' class ex-lifeboat STRATHCLYDE, seen today passing Hunter's Quay and about to enter the Holy Loch. She has been in this role since 2004, and when not out on patrol, she can usually be found in the Great Harbour. Last year, STRATHCLYDE had the unusual duty of escorting HEBRIDEAN PRINCESS, which recently visited the Clyde, when the luxury cruise ship was chartered by Buckingham Palace for a cruise around the Western Isles with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth celebrating her 80th birthday on board.
