Help connect Gourock

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Gourock’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

This ferry service is often the first to be cancelled in inclement weather - docking at Kilcreggan is unsafe in high winds/strong currents, with no realistic alternate routes, so checking with CalMac website is a must The ferry is not suitable for wheelchair users - boarding at both ends involves steps....

This section away from the road was lovely apart from one or two irresponsible dog owners....
