Helensburgh Upper Station

IT HAS been reported — and subsequently denied — that Network Rail is considering closing Helensburgh Upper Station.

The station has been named as 'at risk' in a route utilisation strategy which sets out a vision of the future for rail passengers and Scotland's thousands of miles of track and railway stations.

Seafarer Finlay Campbell

SEAFARER Finlay Campbell was born in Helensburgh in 1869. He signed on as an apprentice on a full-sailed clipper ship, the "Earl of Wemyss".

His captain was another Helensburgh man, Captain Colquhoun. Their ship sank during a storm and Finlay was one of a few survivors.
