Things To See
The Clyde Muirshiel Explorer is a unique opportunity to help everyone experience the rugged coastline of the Clyde in the Year of Natural Scotland. Trips start from just £85 for a one day excursion aboard a luxury yacht.
At each Visitor Centre there are illustrated or interactive exhibitions and seasonal displays on local history and wildlife, entry to them all is free.
Clyde Muirshiel is full of history. From hill forts, roman roads, the medieval processional route, castles and a collegiate church to the more recent history of the 20th C. Greenock Cut, Muirshiel Shooting Estate, aircraft crash sites and the 200 year old Barytes Mine, last worked in 1969.
And you don’t even have to climb a hill to see all of them!
There are lots of road side view points across the Regional Park. Enjoy them online, on a visit to the Regional Park or send us a picture of your favourite view taken in or from the Regional Park.
Clyde Muirshiel is home to one of the UK’s rarest breeding birds – the Hen Harrier. The Regional Park’s moorland landscape offers nest sites for this spectacular bird.
The woods, lochs and rivers of the Park are home to lots of other interesting wildlife as well.
Some wildlife is ‘on camera’.
