Sailing through the years
News of PS Waverley, a regular visitor to Campbeltown, crashing into the pier at Brodick on Arran is particularly disappointing given the vessel only returned to service two weeks ago following a two-year absence.
A funding appeal was launched in June 2019 after it was revealed the vessel – the world’s last seagoing paddle steamer – needed an urgent boiler refit. The appeal raised £2.3 million in just seven months and included a £1 million grant from the Scottish Government.
To remind those who were awaiting Waverley’s next visit to Campbeltown of happier times, we took a look back in our archive and found a photograph of the boat during a previous visit to the area.
We also found photographs of other vessels which have visited Campbeltown over the years.
