Old Photograph Dunoon Road Sandbank Scotland
Old photograph of a vintage car and houses on Dunoon Road in Sandbank near Dunoon, Scotland. Robertson's Yard at Sandbank, a village on the Holy Loch, was a major wooden boat building company in the late 19th and early 20th century. During World War II, this sea loch was used as a submarine base. From 1961 until 1992, it was used as a US Polaris nuclear submarine base. In 1992, the Holy Loch base was deemed unnecessary following the demise of the Soviet Union and subsequently withdrawn. The name of the loch is believed to date from the 6th Century, when Saint Munn landed there after leaving Ireland.
