Yesterday I met with Peter Drummond and Sam Henderson, authors of Fishing Boats of Campbeltown Shipyard (Published by The History Press IBSN 978 0 7524 4765 00).
They are both passionate and knowledgeable about the world of Scottish fishing. They have published four very comprehensive, well researched books about fishing boats, The Purse Seiners, Built by Nobles of Girvan, Fishing Boats of Campbeltown Shipyard and Sputniks and Spinningdales, a History of Pocket Trawlers.
Peter and Sam have agreed to us using a selection of some their many photos for the Top Skippers’ Choice exhibition in Feb 2020. They will also be writing a piece for our archive blog so we’re looking forward to that.
