    The Torpedo testing range on Loch Long has been covered well before on 28DL. Sad to see how trashed it’s become over recent years.

    It was used between 1912 and 1986 - the first torpedo factory opened at Greenock in 1910 and they needed somewhere to test them. The range was busiest during WW2 – in 1944 over 12,000 torpedoes were tested, the peak being 62 in one day.

    Good site on its history by a former CO

    Some details on its operation from http://www.secretscotland.org.uk/index.php/Secrets/LochLongTorpedoRange
