Burthen (more than) 2605 tons.
On the lower deck, or gun deck, she has 17 ports on each side, middle deck 18, upper deck 17, quarter deck 8, and forecastle 2. She will mount 120 guns, from 18 to 32 pounders, besides carronades. Her stern is elegantly neat and light, without that profusion of carved work which formerly decorated ships of her class, having only the unicorn supporting the arms of Scotland. -- Her head is a bust of a female figure, emblematic of her name, with the plaid bonnet, and thistle "of the Saxon-green," and bagpipes, the favourite musical instrument of Caledonia, on each side, carved by Mr. Dickerson, in a manner that does great credit to his taste and judgement. -- Her mainmast is 119 feet in length, and 39 inches in diameter; the weight of her anchors is ninety-three hundred and two quarters.
