Faslane Peace Camp is the world’s oldest peace camp. Situated across the road from HM Naval Base Clyde – home to Britain’s Trident submarines – the camp has served as a base for direct action and demonstration against nuclear weapons for thirty-seven years.
The Peace Camp consists of a line of caravans and buses along a short stretch of the A814 approaching Faslane. Visitors, and potential new residents, are always welcome, and the Camp is child- and dog-friendly. Please be aware that alcohol and drugs are not allowed in the communal spaces to which visitors have access.
The Camp is most easily reached by bus from Helensburgh; the 316 service travels between the train station and Peace Camp twice an hour through most days, and the fare is £2.15 at the time of writing. Alternatively, it’s a 20-minute cycle or hour’s walk along the coastal road to the west of the town.
