Thank you for your review Eileen, our Visitor Centre is open at weekends, 11am-4pm. As you say the trails are open daily, as is the car park and toilets!

Had a stunning walk from here and was impressed by the helpful and knowledgeable ranger on duty. The down side to this place was the dire toilet facilities, which were a bit off putting and had no soap to wash hands with. Toilets in need of a major refurb.

After the winding road which leads from Greenock to "The Cut" , I and my family enjoyed a very nice stroll round the cut. The only thing I would say, that while it is not a challenge,it is still not for the unfit. Also you would be better off with a pair of hiking boots and take at least an anorak. However on a good day it is a wonderful walk.

We dropped in to the café for a light bite and were very impressed. The food was great and there was a good selection! We had falafel wrap and toasties. Coffee was good too. All very reasonably priced. The burgers also looked very nice and all meat locally sourced from a good butcher. It was pretty busy with walkers, fishing folk and their dogs. The chef couldn’t have been more helpful. Bring money - they can’t take bank cards, as there is no internet connection. We will definitely be back!

We did a sponsored walk to raise money for a local tae-kwon-do club up the cut. this place is perfect to relax after hiking the steep hills of the cut.

Luckily the path was less boggy today (we had some days of sunshine prior to today's walk). Were there to count the wood spirits as we missed out some of them the previous times (there are meant to be 12 there, today we counted 14). All path was mended but needs further repair in the future (some rails at the steep stairs are bending outwards). Great views from the top and nice trail along mossy trees and river. Tranquility to enjoy! Big car park at top with toilet and cafes to warm up. 1 hour walk down the glen and back up, round trip.

Hail, rain, snow or sunshine these various walks and trails are perfect to walk. Under one heading ‘visitor centre ‘ it doesn’t do these trails justice. There are a number of combinations you can do. In the last couple of weeks I’ve parked at Overton and walked anti-clockwise along the cut and back over cornalease. I’ve also included the nature trail at times again anti-clockwise so as to walk up the wooden stairs and deck that can be very slippery in the wet if walking down. I’ve also included the Kelly Cut, coming out above the caravan parks in Wemyss Bay and took the train to Drumfrochar and then up the hill to collect my car. What I’m getting at is there is the 10 miles or so from Overton to Wemyss Bay, the 7 mile loop ( including the nature trail or not), or just a short walk so far and back. The scenery is fabulous. Underfoot isn’t as good as could be with quad bike churning up some parts of the trails. Loose stones and uneven surfaces are also common. With that in mind, a good pair of quality hiking boots will protect your ankles and give you a firm footing. I’ve packed at the visitor centre as well and did the walks in various directions to change the perspective. Really is a enjoyable way to get some exercise and fresh air. The trails out with the nature trail are suitable for mountain bikes.

Situated in the hills behind Inverclyde, this is a real gem of a place. There is a fishery where you can have snacks. There’s also a wealth of walks and views. You can walk around the cornalees nature trail in roughly half an hour where you will enjoy stunning waterfalls, forests, loch Thom, Heather covered hills, wildlife and stunning views over the firth of Clyde as far down as the mountains of Arran. If you prefer a longer walk or cycle then cornalees is situated in the middle of the Greenock cut, which is an 11 mile circuit. The cut is a historic waterway that once drove the vast mills and industries of Greenock, before the produce was shipped all over the world. If you’re visiting Greenock by cruise ship and looking for some great outdoors, there’s no need to travel to Loch Lomond, Inverclyde has some stunning spots.

A very enjoyable 7 mile walk around the Cut with plenty to see enroute. Easy walk with an incline at the start. Wrap up for the weather as can be changeable.
