BAE Systems shipyard, Scotstoun, River Clyde

Formerly Yarrows Shipbuilders yard but now part BAE Systems. Yarrows started business in 1870 down in London but outgrew its site and moved to the Clyde in 1906. Since then it has specialised in warships of varies types, mainly destroyers and frigates but more recently it constructed HMS Ocean, currently the Royal Navy's largest warship. This photo was taken in late 2005 when RFA Mounts Bay was nearing completion.
