Lyle Hill viewpoint

Inverclyde | Greenock | 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 southwest 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.

[View at sunset (12/10/15)]
