Next post - Wemyss Bay and ferry to Bute
Third post - on Bute, a 6km circular walk from Rothesay.
On my way to Wemyss Bay and the ferry to Rothesay (see future posts) I broke my journey in Port Glasgow. I wanted to see John McKenna's newly installed 33ft tall sculpture, Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow. I had half about half an hour before my next train and the walk to the shore and Shipbuilders is no more than five minutes, so fifteen minutes to enjoy looking out over the River Clyde, at the not-yet-finished ferry MV Glen Sannox, at the colossal Shipbuilders, at other public art I didn't know was there, and at a black guillemot.
The Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow are truly outstanding. Here they are:
|Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow, John McKenna|
|The River Clyde, looking north-west towards Helensburgh, the Rosneath peninsula and beyond.|

|MV Glen Sannox, under construction..|
|Black guillemot. Living on the east coast I rarely see them.|
The moment you get to a bit of west coast shore - there they are.
DYK they have bright red feet and inside-mouths to match?
