Campbeltown Heritage Centre was celebrating this week as its third and final interpretation panel was installed.

David Gardiner and Alan Milstead inspected the installation at the waterfront opposite the Picture House and thanked Bear Scotland for putting it up for the town.

The other two panels, at Quarry Green and at the Cutting, were installed by MacFadyens, also as a contribution to the community.

‘The Campbeltown and Machrihanish Railway finally closed in 1933, but wouldn’t it be fabulous if it was still operational today, taking visitors out to Machrihanish,’ said Alan.

The route the railway took can be followed by the Tarmac path that goes from close to the ferry terminal to the cutting.
