Video clip of Firth of Clyde from Tower Hill, Gourock

This morning I took the opportunity of  a ‘weather window’ (sunshine) to visit Gourock and Greenock (about 45 mins west of Glasgow) where superb photo opportunities are available from a couple of high elevation view points, namely Tower Hill, Gourock and Lyle Hill, Greenock.

Results of my trip can be viewed via the images and videos posted here.

Firth is a Scottish name for bay or estuary, i.e. where the River Clyde joins the sea in the west of Scotland. Places covered in the images include Dunoon (opposite coast), Holy Loch (lake), Loch Long, Gare Loch, mountains of Argyll (opposite coast), the town of Helensburgh (opposite coast), Gourock, Greenock and Port Glasgow. The latter two have a long industrial history entailing shipbuilding, trade activities, port facilities, ferry terminals and berthing for cruise ships.
