Added at 11:06 on 13 August 2023

Would you like to take part in a PhD research project?

Over the next 24 months a student from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh will be studying the relationship between the local communities and the nuclear submarine bases at Faslane and Coulport as part of an ethnographic film PhD study.

Families who have several generations of contact with the bases, both civilian and military. Families and individuals who have migrated to the area for work are most welcome too! If you have family history or are involved either directly or indirectly, we would love to hear from you. Social history, employment, culture, family, memory is of particular interest!

If you are from Helensburgh, Rhu, Shandon, Garelochhead, Portincaple, Rosneath, Kilcreggan, or any of the other villages on the peninsula, and are interested,  please get in touch with:

Kenneth Grant Glenaan. Email: or on 07968001162

There is no payment for taking part in the study, but any expenses incurred  will be covered - along with lots of tea and coffee!
