Welcome to the website of HMS Sutherland. The Present HMS Sutherland is the third to bear the name. The first, a 54 Gun 4th Rate, originally named HMS Reserve, was launched at Deptford in March 1704. The current HMS Sutherland has seen service all over the world, from the frozen seas of both the Arctic and the South Atlantic to the tropical heat of the Caribbean and the Far East.

Her Patron, Lady Walmsley maintains close links with the ship she launched in 1996. HMS Sutherland has also formed strong links with her affiliated district of Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland and always receives a warm welcome when she visits. Lord and Lady Strathnaver of Dunrobin Castle on the Dornoch Firth are held particularly close to the heart of HMS Sutherland having welcomed the Ship's Company into their beautiful castle during affiliation visits. Our motto is Sans Peur - without fear.
