The Royal Navy warship, HMS Grimsby, will be arriving in Inverness on Thursday; giving locals the opportunity to get up close to the vessel.

The Sandown Class mine countermeasures vessel will arrive alongside the Longman Quay around lunchtime but will unfortunately not be open for public tours. Lieutenant Commander Giles Palin, her Commanding Officer, and his crew have a busy program of events during the five-day visit.

Lt Cdr Palin said: 'Mine Countermeasure Vessels are not that common a sight around the ports of northern Scotland and I’m sure there will be many local people come down to have a look.

'It’s unfortunate that, due to operational reasons, we can’t allow them on board this time, but I do hope we can return at some future date to properly meet and greet the people of Inverness.'
