Restored to her former glory, the Glenlee sailed up the River Clyde on her return home to Glasgow, following refurbishment work at a dry dock in Greenock.
The Glenlee, also known as the Tall Ship, arrived back in the Glasgow Harbour after two weeks in a dry dock as part of a £1.7m refurbishment. The ship is a Glasgow landmark and attracts 35,000 visitors a year.
Fifty men were needed to complete the work as the vessel was cleaned, inspected, had repairs and was then repainted in red, black and grey – traditional shipping colours.
The ship’s refurbishment is taking place before she moves to a berth beside the new £74m Riverside Museum next year. Already 600 tonnes of ballast have been removed, a green heating system installed and an education area built.
