Don't want to contradict one who knows, but as anyone who lives on the Gareloch can tell you, subs sail right into Faslane submerged. You rarely see them on the surface and generally they only do it for a specific reason, ie someone wants to look at them. If the light was right and the tide low, it was generally pretty obvious, though as the Gareloch isn't all that deep.

No, that's 520 civilians employed on-base at Faslane. There are a lot of MOD personnel who live and retire locally and a huge number of people employed by the knock-on effects of having a major facility. I could walk the streets of Garelochhead and find you 500 people whose employment depends on the base in some way by lunchtime. Thousands is a lot closer to the truth.
