Lets not forget this is a working pier for the passenger ferry across to Gourock. A lovely example of Victorian workmanship and a credit to the people who keep it up and running. From the shore it makes a lovely focal point for pictures and...More

This really is the most delightful place. In 20 years we had never been down the Kilcreggan peninsular but just for once we took a drive down here and stayed locally. This lovely pier is so quaint. I cant believe it still has a little...More

As piers go, this is a typical one, nice for a walk or a stroll, peaceful place and nice views looking up, down or across. As piers go, it was ok!

During a recent stop at Kilcreggan when we had a short break in Helensburgh, we visited this small pier which is still in regular use. The Pier is extremely well kept and maintained and is well worth seeing during a visit to the area.
