Having spent the night at anchor in Rothesay Bay, the Type 23 anti-submarine frigate ARGYLL was seen on Saturday afternoon passing Cloch Point as she headed towards Faslane. ARGYLL - second ship in the 'Duke' class to be commissioned - was launched at Scotstoun by Yarrow Shipbuilders in April 1989 and commissioned into naval service two years later. ARGYLL is due to remain a frontline unit in the Royal Navy for the next ten years and recently took part in a deployment with other NATO ships in the Mediterranean.

Royal Navy website has her down as the third, not second, in the class

At least the vessel in the background is attractive!
