Last Saturday in the rain at Rothesay before she made her way back up the Clyde for her winter berth. Taken by a friend of mine. Beautiful picture.

The pic of Waverley in the rain is puzzling me. It's a great shot, but I can't place where it is. If it is indeed Rothesay, then the pier has changed pretty dramatically over the last few years.
Can anyone put me out of my  misery and identify where it is - I thought it might be the 'new' pier at Dunoon, but that doesn't look right either.

As I read the description I understood it to be Rothesay - but I've emailed the guy who took the picture to check.

One of my Paddleduck colleagues....provided a PM to me last night on the subject.....Derek
" Hi Derek, Someone showed me the thread on model boat mayhem regarding the Waverley, and I noticed you had a post. Later in the thread there is some confusion about the whereabouts of a picture, Rothesay or Dunoon. It is actually taken alongside Tighnabruiach pier in the Kyles of Bute. I'm not a member of mayhem but if you want, you can give them the correct answer!
BTW "Tighnabruiach" means "house on the hill" in gaelic! ...regards Clark"

I was thrown overboard as a part of a survival course. The Waverley's crew could no longer survive my cooking.
