Trench Point, Campbeltown

1967 Campbeltown Shipyard Limited was incorporated to re-establish shipbuilding in the yard that had been operated by the Campbeltown Shipbuilding Co until 1922.[1]

The company built mainly steel-hulled trawlers, operating on a scale that allowed them to escape inclusion in British Shipbuilders when the shipbuilding industry was nationalised.

1997 The yard closed in November.
