Worldwide battle to save the Falls of Clyde

The fight is on to save a famous Clyde built ship, the Falls of Clyde, which is under threat in Hawaii. Here Iain Auld tells of her history and her remarkable link with Arran

That same ship has been making national headlines recently due to the threat hanging over the Falls of Clyde - a Greenock-built ship which has been permanently moored at Pier 7 in Honolulu for more than 50 years.
