HILLWALKING GREENOCK CUT - Scottish Walks.

The Greenock Cut  is a man made path above the town of Greenock, Inverclyde, where in the past the water supply, for the town came from. Many of the population worked here, renewing and maintaining the water locks and general environment. Old locks, bothies and canals have been restored to give a sense of the past in the present on this Greenock Cut Walks.

Make your way along the M8 westbound through Greenock, following the signs for Inverkip and Wemyss Bay.  Just outside Greenock, take the well signposted B road for Loch Thom, that leads to the Cornalees Bridge Centre.    This is the start and end of a seven mile Greenock Cut Walk, past Loch Thom and then taking in fantastic views of the Firth of Clyde and returning to the Visitor Centre. An easy walk, with the Arrochar hills and Bute Peninsula to be admired.
