Happy marriage at new Civic Centre

THE NEW Helensburgh Civic Centre incorporates a splendid state of the art Marriage Room which has already hosted its first wedding . . .

When Youth Hostels prospered

HELENSBURGH and district has a long association with Youth Hostels and those who use them, but it is a much smaller number nowadays.

In its heyday, the Scottish Youth Hostels Association had at least 100 hostels open during the season, but today the association's website lists just 36 hostels available for the 2015 season — the nearest being Glasgow, Rowardennan and Crianlarich.
