Ice-breaking tug Scot II being towed home

The rusting hulk of an ice-breaking tug is being towed back to its home base on the Caledonian Canal in a project to restore it to its former glory.
The Scot II was built in 1931 and operated on the canal from its home berth at Fort Augustus.
It was later used as a pleasure cruiser, a floating bar and restaurant before sinking near a boatyard on Bute.
Former canal lock keeper Daniel Clark is leading efforts to restore the tug as an ice-breaker.
