Gourock pool has been open for many years and recently has been refurbished. Very good sized pool and gym very clean and lovely staff, regular transport links for Greenock and Glasgow and lots of cafes bars restaurants in the area beautiful views while you swim couldn’t ask for better. Is open air pool so weather is a factor but on a good day it’s perfect!

Visited this pool towards the end of the season. The temperature is nice so even though it was cold and raining it was still pleasant in the water. There is a barrier all the way along the length of the pool so you can only see the view if you get out of the pool and walk over to it. Would have been nice to just look out. We arrived early to find the changing rooms already beginning to smell and the floors soaking, and considering it was quiet because of the weather this really suprised me, would dread to think what it's like when it's busy. We were given new pounds coins in our change to find the lockers only accepted the old kind. A problem another couple of people were having. I felt the pool wasn't particularly clean either. Won't be returning.

I live local and LOVE this outdoor pool. Situated beside the water, the views are stunning. Heated to 29 degrees so no matter the weather you'll have a lovely swim outside.

Delighted this fabulous facility has remained open until the end of September this year. It opens from 12 o'clock until 7 and the 'regulars' are making good use of it despite some poor weather.
