Attractive woodlands and ten acres of gardens spill down the hillside overlooking the Clyde estuary between Langbank and Port Glasgow. This is the Finlaystone Estate, surrounding a country mansion belonging to Clan MacMillan. The house isn't open to the public, but the rolling landscaped grounds and forest walks make a good destination for a wander on a sunny day. Frequent events - including falconry displays - cater for families well if you come on the right date.
