No.16 "Waverley on the Clyde"
many generations of now senior citizens, born and brought up in
and around Glasgow, joining the crowds of happy holiday trippers
sailing doon the watter to the Clyde resorts of Dunoon
and Rothesay, through the Kyles of Bute to Tighnabruaich and Tarbert,
south to Largs, Ayr, Girvan and Ailsa Craig, across to Millport
on Cumbrae and beyond to Brodick on the Isle of Arran, was a way
of life now looked back upon with a mixture of nostalgia and affection.
This video tries to recapture those memories of bygone days.
The Waverley was built in 1947 and is powered by a Rankin & Blackmore of Greenock 2100 h.p.triple expansion steam engine, giving her a service speed of 14½ knots.
