Wemyss Bay Ferry to Rothesay & Argyle
Inverclyde / North Ayrshire
This is the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry “Argyle” arriving from Rothesay on the
Isle of Bute and unloading in Wemyss Bay.
The village on the far shore is Innellan on the Cowal Peninsula,
just a little south of Dunoon.
These were taken on a less than sunny day in September 2012.
On the other hand, it's pretty standard weather for the Clyde coast.
Unloading the cars and lorries. The normal turn-round time is less than 15 minutes.
This is the station at the pier-head.
As you can see it's got curved platforms, a curved roof and a curved frontage.
Not a straight line in the place, basically.
There was a chimney in the background on the old Inverkip power station, a mile or so to the north, but it's now been demolished so it's been edited out.
In this wide shot the curve of the foot passenger ramp down to the ferry can also be seen.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
