Pointhouse Shipbuilding Yard

Located on the east side of the River Kelvin at its confluence with the River Clyde, the Pointhouse shipbuilding yard of A&J Inglis Ltd occupied a narrow strip of land that limited the size of vessels which could be built there. The SS William Mackinnon was laid up here in its original packing for five years before it was purchased as liquidated stock by the Crown Agents.
