A new booklet highlighting Greenock – the birthplace of James Watt – has been produced.

The free guide, from Inverclyde Tourist Group, is a walking trail around the historic town. It includes William Street, Greenock’s oldest thoroughfare and birthplace of Watt.

Anne McGregor of the group says: “We want to show visitors what’s really good about Greenock. There’s a lot to see here.”

You should be able to pick up a copy of the guide from the Inverclyde Heritage Hub at 75-81 Cathcart Street, Greenock; telephone 01475 715628; e-mail: heritagehub@inverclyde.gov.uk.

The Hub is open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
