River is a shadow of its old self

CASTING an eye across the empty waters of the Clyde today, it's hard to believe how busy the mighty river once was.

Much like Otis Redding, there was lots of fun to be had 'Watching the ships roll in, and then watching 'em roll away again.'

The best place for boat spotters, was Stobcross Quay, the highest accessible point on the river for large, ocean-going vessels.

From here you could catch the Burns & Laird cattle boat to Belfast and, as its name suggests, your travelling companions were a fairly fragrant and noisy bunch.

This old boy, complete with the standard issue Glasgow overcoat and bunnet, found plenty of interest watching the cars and lorries rolling off this ship when it tied up at Stobcross Quay.
