20th May, 2022

Springtime in the British Isles is certainly not disappointing. We have had pretty variable weather since embarking on this cruise. The scenic cruise of St. Kilda was going to be not so scenic, but the wind chased the fog away for a short time allowing us to see the islands and skerries as we passed by. Guests were able to see Stac an Armin and Stac Lee as they ate breakfast.

That was yesterday, and today we are in Greenock on the River Clyde, down river from Glasgow. In this area, the old infrastructure from when the Clyde was a bustling centre of shipping remains, but now are marinas housing leisure or historical craft. One of those, the ‘Waverley’, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, passed us as they headed out into the Firth of Clyde.
