Welcome to the Greenock cruise port guide. Greenock is a friendly little place of 45.000 inhabitants. It is one of the major ship construction centres in Scotland, the birthplace of James Watt and so much more. Although travel guides often don’t mention Greenock, it is worth mentioning because of the people and their attitude on life. When you step into the terminal there are so many facilities there like tourist information, clan information desk and free tours through Greenock. All these volunteers come here because they are so proud of where they come from and they want to give you a piece of it. It is absolutely a pleasure to arrive in Greenock. If it wasn’t for these people we would recommend you to get out of town, but in this case either stick around with the locals you’ll find at the cruise terminal for an unforgettable time or hop on the train to anywhere. Greenock is the gateway to many destinations in Scotland. Visit Stirling castle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk wheel or the Scottish Highlands or lowlands from here.
