Swedish Ships in the Beauly Firth

This photograph shows the Swedish training ships "Falken" and "Gladen" on a visit to Scotland in 1956. They pictured at anchor in the Beauly Firth.

Both ships were built for the Swedish Navy in the 1940s as replacements for the full rigged ships 'Jarramas' and 'Najaden'. They are used to train navy cadets but also sail with other civilian and volunteer defence organisations. They continue to represent the Swedish Navy at home and abroad and take part in the Tall Ships races.
