Picture Profile : The Firth of Clyde
Updated: Aug 3
The Firth of Clyde, where the River Clyde flows into the Irish Sea, has some spectacular views.
The river flows between the Renfrewshire mainland and the Argyll peninsula and regular ferries take 20 minutes to cross between Gourock and Dunoon; saving a 55 mile (3 hour) trip by road.
The beauty of the area is added to by three islands, Arran, Bute and Cumbrae. These can be reached from the mainland by ferry services from Ardrossan, Wemyss Bay and Largs.
The Firth of Clyde is about 30 miles west of Glasgow and all ferries offer combined train and ferry tickets.
