Weighing in at just 90,049 tonnes, the Queen Victoria is the smallest of Cunard’s ships but her majestic appearance drew plenty of attention nonetheless as she sat just outside Oban Bay on Friday.

Carrying nearly 2,000 passengers and 900 crew, the 13-year-old vessel arrived at 8am on Friday and was present for most of the day as her passengers enjoyed the sights and sounds at the start of the Oban Live weekend.
