Turning on the tap: Saturday, 10 March 2018

Meeting on the north side of Muirsheil Country Park at the Cornalees Visitor Centre the walk will follow the good paths of the standard Greenock Cut circular route. The walk is relatively flat but there will be, hopefully, options to do a shorter walk or even climb a hill! The walk passes 23 stone built bridges as well as two bothies – the latter provided accommodation for the workers who built the cut. The cut opened in 1827 and supplied Greenock with water for industrial and domestic use. It was built by engineer Robert Thom and was replaced by a tunnel in 1971. In good weather there are great views
