Possibly one of the finest views in Scotland if not the world. The lofty aspects afford the visitor a 360 degree view of the whole district but the most amazing one is over Gourock, the West Highlands and the Cowal peninsula. If you visit here...More

In the daytime with a clear view you can see miles into the distance with a fantastic panorama of Greenock, Gourock all the way up the Clyde and over Dumbarton Rock to Ben Lomond. Almost like being a bird watching the ferry coming and going.

The views from here over Gourock and the Clyde and the far reaches are magnificent. The day we visited there was a good breeze but high cloud and plenty of sunshine. Photographs don't do this justice.
