“Enjoyable Walk - Lunderston Bay to Inverkip”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We found Lunderston Bay to be especially good for children. Bring your bucket and spade for the beach to start off with and then spend a bit of time in the play park before continuing on a 3 mile walk towards Inverkip Marina past fields of cattle and gorgeous views over towards Cowal. The walk is on the flat so very accessible.

Once at Kip Marina we visited The Chartroom Restaurant which finished off our day nicely.

“All you need is sun, the rest is all there for you.”

Lunderston Bay has a magical quality, which can only be fully appreciate when there are few people about. This does not happen on Bank Holidays, but what the hell....you will love it anyway.
Cross over the road and make sure you visit the Garden Centre, which has to be one of the finest in the West of Scotland. You will find much more than plants!!...enjoy!!

“Nice walk”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Sometimes take the grand kids for a wee stroll along the shore. Garden centre opposite great place for a bite to eat. Nice flat cycle route from Gourock to Inverkip Marina .Views down the Clyde always good even on a bad day. Only negative - don't look for a loo (Portaloo on site).

Hi CookieKips, thank you for your review and visit to Lunderston Bay last year. We thought you would like to know that there has now been a new toilet block installed at the site. We hope this will encourage you to visit again soon!

“stunning views”

Stunning views whatever the weather. You can walk from here along the shoreline to Inverkip. Tends to be quite busy in the summer months.

“A Bit of Wilderness, Close to Everything”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great for walking, views, splashing around (in warm weather)rock pools, bird watching and picnics. Can get a bit muddy. Dog owners are being more careful and there is the added bonus of the huge and interesting Cardwell Bay Garden Centre across the road.
