    Was in it a few times with Callum before the pier was build great harbour once your in your land locked
    the Campbeltown men called it the big chain
    Yes you're right George there were a few moorings you could pick up very handy. Big Neil Jackson took a lot of herring out of that bite northside of the harbour before Callum caught on.
