“The Scottish Fisheries Museum has a long association with National Historic Ships and has supported Shipshape from the start. Our involvement encompasses the era of Martin Heighton and Dr Robert Prescott who served NHSUK with distinction who promoted strong links to our museum. We are proud to be the hub for Shipshape Scotland and part of this UK-wide launch. We will endeavour to enable and encourage a diverse range of activity with maritime partners across Scotland.”
