Battered by the storm

photo 1The Clyde coast was battered by gales last night, but there was less damage than feared after an amber alert was issued by the Met Office. Roads and schools remained open in Helensburgh and Lomond despite the high winds and heavy rain, and the Kilcreggan to Gourock ferry service ran as normal from 10am. This picture of the storm surge at the bottom of School Road in Kilcreggan at 1.25am was taken by Fiona Holland.
