Gourock

This is a scenic tour giving you an opportunity to see the countryside of rolling hills, woods and farms.

Your trip begins with a visit to the Lyle Hill which gives a spectacular view of the Firth of Clyde and the surrounding hills. This area was important in World War 2 and the Cold War, and your guide will tell you something of this.

You will then travel through the countryside to the historic village of Inverkip where there is a marina with wonderful views across the water. Returning by the scenic coastal road following the River Clyde you will pass the Cloch Lighthouse, built in 1797. If weather permits, we will stop in the seaside town of Gourock.

Before you reach the Terminal again you will drive past large stone houses built in the 19th Century along the magnificent Esplanade beside the River Clyde.

Throughout the tour, your guide will describe what you are seeing. But you will also hear stories relating to our area, some may be taken with a pinch of salt!
