Arriving early in the morning from Liverpool, the German coaster UPHUSEN was heading to the anchorage before continuing upriver to load a cargo of scrap metal at Diesel Wharf. UPHUSEN is one of the Bockstiegel fleet and has visited the river a number of times. She is 4,334 tonnes deadweight and 90.4 metres in length. She was built in Holland in 1996. In the background, CalMac's car ferry JUPITER lies at Dunoon Pier.
