Lyle Hill viewpoint
|[View over Gourock from Lyle Hill]|
A high level road around the back of the suburbs of Greenock and Gourock provides fantastic views across the Firth of Clyde to the south-west Highlands. The hill, named after Abram Lyle of sugar fame, is crowned with a whitewashed memorial. This takes the form of an anchor combined with the Cross of Lorraine, remembering the WWII efforts of the Free French forces. Sunset views are spectacular; squint a little bit and Gourock looks almost as alluring as Oban in the evening sun.
