MV Isle of Arran ferry was heading out from Ardrossan to Campbelltown, the route we had taken out to Kintyre six days previously. The 190m bulk carriers MV Star Polaris and the 289m CHS Cosmos were at anchor waiting to make their way up to Hunterston. The 275m Da Yuan Hu tanker was waiting to make her way to the Finnart oil terminal. The stone tower marks Horse Island which lies off the port of Ardrossan.
MRV Scotia was making her way up the Clyde. She is a Scottish Government fisheries research vessel.
