Ship Crane, Greenock

A coastal plain backed by hilly moorland makes up the landscape of this region of west central Scotland which lies to the south of the River Clyde between Glasgow and the Firth of Clyde. Its population is largely concentrated in the coastal settlements of Greenock (its administrative centre), Gourock, Port Glasgow, Inverkip and Wemyss Bay. Ferry terminals offer tourists quick access to the Highlands and its Clydeport container terminal and other dock facilities give local hi-tech and shipping businesses access to national and international markets.
