|Anyone travelling betwixt Carradale and Campbeltown can't help but notice the Royal Navy Frigate currently standing at anchor between Smerby and Kilchousland.|
She's HMS Northumberland (F238) and is a Type 23 (Duke Class) Frigate.
She was launched on 4 April 1992 and displaces around 4200 tons. She is 133 metres long and her Rolls Royce gas turbine engines can power her to a maximum speed of 28 knots.
There's loads more information about this ship on the Navy News website.
Meanwhile there's been quite a lot of RAF activity in the skies above Carradale this morning, with both Tornados and Hawk jet aircraft over-flying at quite low altitudes.
