River Gryfe at Crosslee

The River Gryfe (also Gryffe) rises in hills to the south of Greenock in Inverclyde, from where it flows north into the Gryfe Reservoirs and then south and east down Strath Gryfe to Kilmacolm. This section of the river is referred to as the Gryfe (or Gryffe) Water. Having merged with the Green Water, the river continues towards Bridge of Weir in Renfrewshire. It then travels east falling into the Black Cart Water at a point 3 miles (5 km) northeast of Bridge of Weir and 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Paisley. The upper section (Gryfe Water) is 7½ miles (12 km) in length, while the lower section represents a further 9 miles (15 km).
