The Royal Yacht Britannia

The Royal Yacht Britannia by Ed OKeeffe Later this afternoon we got on a more extended bus tour towards Leith, a town near Edinburgh but on the estuary of the Firth of Forth. It was traditional the docks for Edinburgh. Moored next to the new Ocean Terminal Shopping Mall was the retired Royal Yacht Britannia. This was the Queens yacht from 1953 right through to 1997. It was around 412 feet in length and had travelled over 1 million miles in its service. Photographing such a small vessel would surely not be a challenge but due to where it had been moored and the surrounding buildings etc this was the best photo I managed to get.
