St.Clair 4

The first ro-ro ferry to connect Shetland with the Scottish mainland, the P & O Ferries "St Clair" enters Lerwick harbour, with the island of Bressay in the background. This was the fourth vessel on the route to bear the name "St. Clair", the previous three being side-loading. This painting, in oils on hardboard, is 24 x 18 inches in size. It was bought by a studio visitor in 2009.
