Probably a silly question to which I probably know the answer being as there are only photos of parts of her on barges on the site  Smiley

Is HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH being built under cover or is there any possibility to catch site of her and from where?

I'm working in Edinburgh for a few days and was wondering if it was worth a visit to Rosyth

Regards

Bob

Last time i was over at Rosyth she was out in the open, no covers and certainly not inside.
If your coming from Edinburgh, pull off just over the bridge, and go through Rosyth and pass the naval base. Not far from there you can turn left and it takes you down to the back gate of the yard and there she is

You can take a walk from North Queensferry onto the Forth Bridge and probably get some sort of shot with a long lens. She being put together in dry dock at Rosyth. HM The Queen will be conducting a ceremony for her in July 2014.

Every towage company' dream: an 11-tug job.
Not sure if I approve of "Hmsqnlz" as AIS name, though.
