Why go to Greenock (Glasgow)?

Pros:

A walk into town will yield views of mountains and lakes; you'll find internet and shops at the terminal

Cons:

Glasgow, the main attraction during a stop in Greenock, is 35 minutes away; Edinburgh is 90 minutes

Bottom Line:

You'll have to venture outside of Greenock to get the most from a visit to this port

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Pounds Sterling, but note that Scotland prints its own notes so you may do a double take when you see one -- but it is legal tender. The nearest ATMs are in Greenock, five minutes walk away. For current currency conversion figures visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com.

Language?

English (with a Scottish accent).
