With kind permission of the ship's Master and not normally granted , I was pleased at the chance to capture this image of Caledonian MacBrayne Jupiter's bridge whilst en route to Dunoon on a Sunday afternoon. The 'Jupiter' was withdrawn from regular Firth of Clyde services in November 2010. She went up to Rosneath beside her sister Juno , which had been laid up for four years and had so much vegetation growing from her and was dismantled in situ.
On the 26th of June 2011 , 'Jupiter' had the indignity of being towed from her home waters , the Firth of Clyde forever to be broken up in Denmark. This left only one 'Clyde Streaker' left out of three 'Saturn' , until she too was finally withdrawn and retired on 30th August 2011.
