Heritage Inverclyde Coastal Trail

This project forms part of Inverclyde Council’s Heritage Inverclyde initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the area’s history.,

The trail runs from Langbank to Wemyss Bay and goes past some of Inverclyde’s landmark and heritage sites, such as Newark Castle and the Comet in Port Glasgow, the Titan Crane and Custom House in Greenock, Cloch Lighthouse in Gourock and finishes with the iconic railway station and pier at Wemyss Bay. The trail includes several waterside walks and cycle routes along the way.
