The TS Royalist sailed into Aberdeen Harbour this morning around 9am.

The Sea Cadet training ship has sailed from Scarborough and is making her way to Dochgarroch, at the mouth of Loch Ness, where she is due to arrive on June 13.

According to vesselfinder.com she has sailed from Whitby taking a little over 24 hours for her journey.

The Royalist is the Sea Cadets’ flagship, a training brig that takes 24 cadets to sea for six day voyages.
