   This collection of wonderful images, all taken by Ally, shows

the German owned Tanker MURRAY STAR arriving at Rothesay

Dock, Clydebank, Scotland on 21st April 2020.

   Ally advises that she was carrying a cargo of oil grades

from Kalundborg, Denmark, for discharge at the Tank Farm

at the Dock, and in the Clyde her pilot tug was BATTLER

and her stern tug was AYTON CROSS.


 The first photo shows MURRAY STAR entering the dock stern first

with AYTON CROSS. The second and third images as she is positioned

into the fuel dock.  Photo four shows BATTLER nudging MURRAY STAR

  into the docking position.  Number five is Rothesay Dock with

MURRAY STAR docked. Photo number 6 is BATTLER and AYTON CROSS

heading back to Greenock.  Photo number 7, is Sunset over Rothesay

 Often you just see images of tugs this time, as in Allys work,

you can see and feel tugs at work.
