Greenock Cruises

Greenock lies at the entrance to the Firth of Clyde on the west coast of Scotland and is a gateway to Glasgow. This industrial port shipped herring in the 17th century but became industrialised and was blitzed in 1941. A few older buildings remain like the Customs House but not many. James Watt, the discoverer of steam power was born here in 1736 and there is a statue of him.
