More Information...

Gourock West Bay is a shingle beach with excellent panoramic views out onto the Upper Firth of Clyde and of the surrounding mountainous peninsulas. The beach is rather narrow, and at high tide, it disappears underwater completely, but the lovely views can still be admired along the promenade that backs the beach. At the northern end of the beach, Gourock outdoor swimming pool and fitness gym looks out over the Firth. A free car park can be found next to the swimming pool, and roadside parking is also available alongside the beach, which is accessed via stairs or a slipway. Other facilities along the promenade include toilets and a children's play area. Further facilities such as shops and places to eat can be found in the centre of Gourock, north of the beach. The town also has a railway station with direct services to and from Glasgow. Gourock is the point of departure for many ferries crossing over the Firth of Forth and the town is home to the Royal Gourock Yacht club.
