Scallop Invasion

On a recent wee jaunt down the coast we decided to stop off in Portavogie for a nice seafood lunch in the Quays Bar & Restaurant (i had the scallops! delish)... at the edge of the car park there's a little trail that takes you to the beach, the trail itself is covered in scallop shells, fair enough i thought, until we got to the beach! What a surreal sight, there were scallop shells everywhere, all crammed in between the rocks and encrusting the remains of an old shipwreck like a jewelled treasure trove... 

the pictures paint a better image than i could ever describe...

extraordinary. i've seen something similar with smaller shells somewhere on the thames or medway estuary but these scallop shells are incredible

Does anyone know how these shells got there? I saw the shells a couple of days ago and was told that there used to be a fish factory nearby but I can't find out when it closed.
