Our American Years Revisited voluntary group has been established to explore, record and share the stories connected to 31 years of US Naval Base presence on the Holy Loch (from 1961 to 1992) and the impact this has had on the history and heritage of our community. We are working to uncover and record the wealth of information from Dunoon and across the Atlantic and to preserve and present this in ways that engage with local people, visitors and people online around the world.
