A timelapse video taken from the front of a Portuguese Navy frigate heading from Dumbarton has given people the chance to experience sailing up the majestic River Clyde.

The 40-second video shows the NRP Corte-Real as she makes her way up the river past Dumbarton with a quick glimpese of the Rock and under the Erskine Bridge, before then passing Renfrew and Scotstoun prior to berthing at King George V Dock at Shieldhall near to Braehead.

The crew can be seen standing admiring the view on the ship's forward deck towards the end of the timelapsie as it makes it way up the river with grey clouds floating overhead.

The clip was shared on Twitter by Marinha, the Portuguese Navy, who tweeted: "NRP Corte-Real, integrated in the permanent naval force of NATO Standing NATO Maritime Group 1, practiced the port of Glasgow, to start its participation in the British Exercise Dynamic Mariner 2021/Joint Warrior 212."
