The camp had been set up the previous year in protest at the siting of Trident nuclear weapons at the Faslane naval base in Argyll and Bute and has been occupied continuously, though in several different locations, ever since.

From its humble beginnings, it is now well-established, with mains water and a telephone connection.

Protesters, whose numbers have varied considerably over the years recently celebrated 32 years of action with a special party.

The issue of Trident has become a major talking point of the independence referendum debate, with the SNP saying it is in favour of getting rid of the weapons in the event of a Yes vote on September 18.
