The Last Sea-Going Paddle Steamer

The Last Sea-Going Paddle Steamer A3 Poster by Raymond Murray

It’s a beautiful day for a wee sail “Doon the Watter”. P.S. Waverley will be sailing the River Clyde until 30th August and can be boarded not far from us at Custom House Quay, Greenock or further down the coast at Largs Pier.

She is a sight to behold, and passes our window often during her Summer on the Clyde. A few years ago, I took this video while on board of the engine room and her steam engine made by Rankin & Blackmore, Engineers, Eagle Foundry, in Greenock.

So, go for a sail. Enjoy a great day out with fantastic scenery in the company of this majestic Lady.

Bob Lees Artist Spotlight

Bob studied at Glasgow School of Art and graduated in 1959. After completing National Service in RAF in Singapore, he qualified as a teacher of art in Glasgow.

Throughout his teaching life he has always painted, being of the belief that an art teacher should also be a practising artist. Now retired from the post of Principal Teacher of Art at Craigmount High School in Edinburgh, he can devote more time and energy to painting.

Together with his wife Val (a stained glass artist and teacher) they have renovated various properties in Edinburgh, Arran and the Borders. They have three grown up daughters also in the art world. Bob paints mostly in acrylics and depicts the many different moods of the Scottish landscape.

Bob Lees has had solo exhibitions in Edinburgh and Arran, and exhibited in other galleries (one of his paintings was presented to the late Princess Diana on an official visit to Arran). His work hangs in various private collections in the UK, Europe, Russia and the United States. Bob and Val live in Edinburgh but spend much of their time in their converted church in Corrie on the Isle of Arran.
