Looks like is heading back up to Scotstoun at the moment just passing JWD in Greenock at 09.10. Bruiser and battler look to be heading up river as well.

Heard a rumour that there may be engine problems with metal fragments found in gearbox, but not confirmed

I see that HMS Forth was accepted at Scotsoun on 25 January 2018 but requires some work there before undergoing work up. There seemed to be a rather longer spell of trials than larger ships require.
