Glencaple Quay was a busy port in its time and the first ship to enter the Quay was the ‘Success’ which brought a cargo of American tobacco. Ships regularly ran between Glencaple and Liverpool carrying a variety of goods and passengers. Heavy taxes were imposed on certain goods which resulted in a very active smuggling trade, especially of tobacco and tea. If you take a wander around Glencaple you’ll find three oak ‘boat’ benches which have been placed along the shore as a reminder of the rich maritime heritage of Glencaple and the important regional role it played in ship building and trade. Each bench is carved with tales from this era, so why not come for a visit and see if you can find all three?
You can learn more about Glencaple Quay from the Caerlaverock Community Association page which has photographs from before the massive refurbishment that has taken place in recent years.
