While some may think that industrial structures are ugly and pollute the skyline, I think that these cranes have a strange beauty of their own. In a way they are a visible reminder that Greenock still has a working port - something to be proud of.
They are used at the quayside at Greenock Ocean Terminal for loading and unloading containers onto ships. They are one of the first things that passengers on cruise ships see as they dock at Greenock.
They are visible for miles up the coast.
Seeing the Clydeport cranes means I've come home.
