A trip on the Waverley (Part One): Dunoon to Rothesay

July 31st, 2009 alison

Waverley Glasgow

Its the Glasgow Fair, our day begins at Dunoon. We’ve left the sailing boat tied up and taken to the paddles.

Who's at the helm?

Who’s driving? It’s OK, the captain is steering from upstairs. The big black drum seems to be a steam-driven winch.

Some passengers

It’s Glasgow holiday season, which might explain why the Waverley was full of passengers in fancy dress, as cavemen.  These two seem almost normal.
