Co-located with the Royal Marines Detachment in Strathmore Avenue Dundee we maintain close links with the local area and are proud to continue the naval presence and traditions in Dundee.

The reservists receive the same training as their Rosyth (HMS Scotia) based colleagues, but on a different night. They regularly have the opportunity to meet up with the other members of HMS Scotia for joint evening and weekend training, as well as social events.
