We are delighted to announce the launch of a new South Kintyre Development Trust (SKDT) heritage project, Top Skippers’ Choice. This project will map out the story of Campbeltown Shipyard Ltd through the people who worked there and the skippers who bought the boats built there.
Jan Nimmo is running this participatory project and it is for anyone who has a story to tell or an image to share, so please spread the word and get involved .
Email or call Jan Nimmo for a chat 07981642564.

“I loved my time at the “Yerd”. It was a great place to work. The camaraderie and the pride from the workers was second to none, as we built the most successful fishing boats in Europe. I worked in all aspects of the boatbuilding: fabrication of sections, erection, fitting out. They were great times indeed, especially launch days, when the skippers would fill the canteen with beer and whisky”. Arthur Crossan
