"Greenock" Greenock by JessieLang

Greenock Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 57 photos

Greenock is the cruise port for visiting Glasgow or Edinburgh, but it has something to offer visitors as well. Volunteers were giving free tours of their town on the day we were there.

Greenock was famous for shipbuilding and sugar refining. James Watt was born in Greenock, and they have a connection to Robert Burns through Highland Mary.

Greenock was the main entry point for troops and supplies from North America during WWII because it has a good harbor.
