Golspie stop-ff for carrier HMS Ark Royal

Extract from the Northern Times of March 12, 2010, with photograph, of the anchoring off Golspie of the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal. The 211m carrier was anchored about 2 miles off-shore from the afternoon of 6 March until the early evening of 7 March, just over 100 years after the battleships anchored in approximately the same area (see 2009.111.02) in Dec 1909. A report on BBC Scotland TV News on 12 March recorded that the carrier, launched by the Queen Mother in 1981, was on sea trials in the Moray Firth following refit.
