The Tall Ship at Glasgow Harbour
The Tall Ship at Glasgow Harbour is one of only five tall ships' to be built on the River Clyde in Glasgow and is the only one that is still based here. The ship's name is the S.V. Glenlee and after it was built in 1896 it then circumnavigated the globe four times transporting cargo around the world. The Glenlee was then purchased by the Spanish navy and in 1981, after being used as a training ship, was taken to Seville harbour where the Glenlee was forgotten. The Glenlee was then purchased by the Clyde Maritime Trust and restored over seven years.
