An unusual visitor to the Clyde was the heavy lift cargo ship BELUGA FAITH, seen as she passed the lighthouse at Cloch Point on her way upriver to Glasgow, where she would be loading cargo for West Africa. Built in China and delivered to Beluga a little less than a year ago, the 138 metre long ship has a deadweight of 12,744 tonnes. She is fitted with two cranes rated at a maximum of 180 tonnes each. Despite having a large, modern, fleet of similar ships, the Beluga Group is facing an uncertain future.

Tenuious rumours of it being the new Dunoon ferry were soon scotched of the Beluga left port with the craft still onboard.... funny how rumours start eh?
