Glen Mallan & Faslane

Well, an early start for a trip to Glen Mallan and Faslane this morning.

First ship to appear was HMS Diamond who paid a visit to the armaments jetty. The weather did us no favours, varying from rain to mist and drizzle.

After leaving Diamond as she approached the jetty, we made a quick trip down to Kilcreggan where we were just on time to catch RFA Diligence leave the Gareloch after a short visit to Faslane sub base.

By the time HMS Montrose arrived in the loch, the mist had descended enough to obscure most of the background.
