Walk to Corlic Hill - Greenock

I'd been planning to do this walk for some time now, as I recalled it from my youth.

This is a walk I covered as a youngster and recall that you could view six shires - namely - Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Stirlingshire, Dunbartonshire, Argyllshire, and Ayrshire.

Although Corlic Hill is only 994 Feet above sea level, it affords tremendous views of the countryside.

I also recall that at one time you could avail yourself of scones and tea on the route, but this was something I myself never experienced.
I believe the lady who lived there for many years was called Peggy Rankin, and that the cotttage is now in ruins.
