5. SOUTH EAST SCOTLAND

HMS Illustrious sails into Rosyth Dockyard for the start of refit in October 2002. In the background can be seen HMS Invincible and some of the decommissioned nuclear submarine hulks awaiting disposal.

South East Scotland contains a number of important military locations for each branch of the armed forces. During the Cold War it also provided facilities that would be employed to govern Scotland should nuclear war break out. Although some of the influential Cold War bases have been closed, there remains a considerable military presence in the area, not least at Rosyth and Leuchars.
