The Firth of Clyde has some wondeful scenery, not that I am in any way biased.
The rocky coastlines are littered with lighthouses, most of them no longer functioning, but still standing as a reminder of the dangers in the seas around them.
Here are some more pictures from my day out on the Waverley last week.
