As a passenger on the Adonia ... I have to say that Greenock was a pleasure to visit.
This was made even more memorable because of the efforts made by the Inverclyde Tourist Group.
This Group is made up of local men and women volunteers who, invariably dressed in highland costumes, make themselves available, whenever a Cruise Ship visits Greenock.
They not only meet and greet all the passengers getting off the ships, giving advice on what to see and where to go ... they also organise and run superb coach tours to local places of interest.
And at the end of the day, along with a local Pipe Band and Big Jock these lovely people 'parade' on the Terminal Quay Side to wave goodbye to the departing passengers ... absolutely superb.

They are on the left of this picture with waving the Scottish Saltire ... the Pipe Band is in the middle and Big Jock is ... well you can't miss Big Jock, can you? For a close up ... see ...

Also visible in the picture is the 'Weather Forecasting Stone' feature ... for a close up ... see ...

Incidentally ... due to bad weather conditions ... Adonia never did make it to the Isle of Man!
Next time, maybe!
