Greenock (Glasgow) Cruise Reviews
We were docked here 10am-6pm and even getting into Glasgow would give only 4 hours of sightseeing, there didn't seem a lot to do around Greenock. Be sure to check train time to make the best use of the time in GlasgoRead More

Good excursion options (e.g. Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, trips to Highlands and Lochs and 2 hours to Edinburgh via coach) BUT nothing to see in Greenock and not a big fan of Glasgow...Read More

Excellent ship tour to lovely village designed by Lever Brother Exec. Small museum very interesting, as was the hotel tea with scones, clotted cream and jamRead More

We walked to a local park and look-out point. We met and talked with some friendly local citizens. The views from the lookout were worth the walk. On the pier, drum and pipe band set the mood.Read More
