The small car ferry FOYLE RAMBLER was seen passing Gourock as she made her way back to Northern Ireland following her recent visit to the Garvel Dydock at Greenock. FOYLE RAMBLER was built in Germany in 1972 for use on the River Weser, and was purchased by the Lough Foyle Ferry Company in 2004 after being made redundant following the opening of a road tunnel. The other ferry owned by the same company, FOYLE VENTURE, was also at Garvel recently for annual survey.
