Clyde-built ship set to re­turn from Hawaii

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

A Clyde-built ship is to re­turn home af­ter years spent as a vis­i­tor at­trac­tion in Hawaii.

Built in 1878 in Port Glas­gow, the Falls of Clyde is cur­rently moored in Hon­olulu har­bour.

A group cam­paign­ing to bring the ship back to Scot­land said it had agreed a deal with a Dutch com­pany to col­lect it in Feb­ru­ary next year.

The plan is to re­store the Falls of Clyde and use it as an ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing ves­sel. The Save Falls of Clyde cam­paign hopes a moor­ing can be se­cured in Greenock near to where it was built.
