We were lucky to be staying in a cottage right next to the pier and watched the activity every day. There are regular ferries from Kilcreggan Pier to Gourock every day except Sunday and we travelled over on the Chieftain to Gourock for the day....More

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.
