The ‘Glenlee’, Glasgow’s Tall Ship, Glasgow, Scotland
Hi Folks! This is Glasgow’s Tall Ship, the ‘Glenlee’, a steel hulled sailing ship. She lies next to the Glasgow’s iconic Transport Museum. The ship was built in Glasgow by Archibald Sterling & Co, and went into service in 1896. She circumnavigated the globe 4 times, and survived Cape Horn 15 times, before being bought by the Spanish Navy in 1922. In 1990, the Clyde Maritime Trust purchased her for £40,000 and saved her from ruin!
She is a beautiful ship, restored fully and now fulfils her role as a visitor attraction. Next post, I will show you the river frontage of the Glasgow Transport Museum for reference!
Thanks for visiting!
