Hundreds take part in anti-Trident demonstration at Faslane base
The demonstration, which began at noon on Sunday, is believed to be the biggest march at the base in a decade.
Hundreds of protesters have gathered at Faslane naval base calling for the UK's nuclear weapons system to be scrapped.
Members of the Scottish Scrap Trident coalition traveled from across Scotland to the base near Helensburgh in Argyll.
The demonstration, which began at noon on Sunday and involved almost a thousand people, is believed to be the biggest march at the base in a decade.
A Scrap Trident spokeswoman said: "It is obvious that the main parties at Westminster are hoping that the final formal decision to renew the Trident nuclear weapon system will slip past unnoticed, pushed on by the momentum of the vast sums that have already been spent on the project and the Mutual Defence Agreement with the US.
"It now looks more than likely that they will not be able to do so, given that the Trident question may well play a key role in the event of a hung parliament.
"This means that the people of Scotland should be given every opportunity to register their rejection of nuclear weapons.
"Debate around the recent independence referendum has made it clear that awareness of and opposition to Britain's weapons of mass destruction has increased significantly.
"In Scotland in the last two years we have been reflecting on the values we want to characterise our communities and our society.
"Trident is an absolute affront to our shared vision for sane and peaceful co-operation across the globe."
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was not at the demonstration but has backed the Scrap Trident campaign, calling for the UK Government to cancel plans to renew nuclear weapons.
She said: "My opposition to the possession of nuclear weapons and to the basing of Trident in Scotland is absolute and I offer my full support to the Scrap Trident Coalition.
"It is my goal, and the policy of the Scottish Government, to secure the withdrawal of nuclear weapons from Scotland and to support the pursuit of global nuclear disarmament.
"The Scottish Parliament voted to reaffirm its support for these goals on August 6, 2014.
"I agree strongly with the message of this demonstration and I offer the Scottish Government's support for a peaceful and lawful demonstration.
"Through such efforts, the public and civic society can demonstrate to the UK Government the democratic opposition that exists to the continued possession and threat of nuclear weapons."
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed there had been no arrests during the demonstration.
