Ark_Royal.jpg
Ark Royal's Farewell416 viewsThe 25 year-old aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal, the Royal Navy flagship, leaves Loch Long for the final time on Wednesday November 17 2010 after spending four days moored at the Glenmallon jetty for her ammunition to be removed, following the Government decision to decommission the 22,000 ton vessel.

Rosneath-Castle-demolition.jpg
Rosneath Castle demolition604 viewsCompleted in 1806 by London-based architect Joseph Bonomi, this neo-classical mansion replaced a castle burnt down in 1802. It was used as a military hospital during the First World War and was home to Queen Victoria's daughter Princess Louise, the Dowager Duchess of Argyll, until her death in 1939. It was an HQ for the Rosneath Naval Base in World War Two, then abandoned, then damaged by fire in 1947, and demolished in 1961 — when this picture was taken.
Rosneath-House.jpg
Rosneath House363 viewsA print of Rosneath Castle probably from a book written by John M.Leighton around 1840, entitled "Strath Clutha or Beauties of the Clyde". The name J.Fleming is in the bottom left corner and the name Joseph Swan in the bottom right corner. John Fleming was a Greenock artist who lived from 1792-1845. Joseph Swan was a Glasgow engraver and, it would appear, something of an entrepreneur. Image supplied by Stewart Noble.
