Greenock Gateway to Scotland Lochs

The Scottish town of Greenock stands proudly on the southern bank of the Firth of Clyde. The original small harbour was converted into a main port in the early 1700s and flourished from the growing imports of Caribbean sugar. As the town’s stature grew, so did its buildings: the Municipal Buildings has an impressive 245 foot tower.

The intriguing Underheugh Cottage is a working smallholding that offers visitors the chance to try activities like pig-keeping and dressing up like an ancient Scot.[ReadMoreMob] Further cultural experiences are available at the McLean Museum, which details Greenock’s shipbuilding past.

The town’s Esplanade is a delightful stroll, and offers spectacular views out along the peninsula to Kilcreggan and Helensburgh.
