ⓘ HMS Varbel

HMS Varbel was a Royal Navy shore establishment during World War II, used as a base for Operation Source. It was in the luxury 88-bedroomed Kyles Hydro Hotel at Port Bannatyne on the Isle of Bute in the Inner Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland.

The hotel was demolished in the 1970-ies. Houses along the waterfront are still there. Pierce is gone, except for some old rotting piles.
