The Royal Navy's latest nuclear-powered submarine HMS Artful arrived at Faslane today - the first of many visits to her base.
She is the third in the Astute Class and will join 'Astute' and 'Ambush' once accepted by the navy from BAE Systems.
It's a pity the weather closed in just as she arrived, but I've managed a few images and hope you enjoy them.
