The Bothy - Inverclyde's home of walking and cycling, at Gourock station.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

NCN75 runs along the footway of Lower Kempock Street, passing a car park exit and a bus stop layby along the way.

A choice of shared-use steps or shared-use pathway on the seafront at Gourock, plus some cycle parking.

Signs for the Clyde Coastal Path, but not NCN75, outside the entrance to Gourock station. Only some of the poles have a blue stripe on them.

Cycle parking outside Gourock station. There were also stands inside on the concourse and these were more popular.

Just be grateful junctions of the M25 aren't signed like this.

Cycle parking inside Gourock railway station.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock Station, hence the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Cycle parking at the Waterfront Leisure Centre.

I'm not sure the sign for Newark Castle is strictly necessary!

A sign on the newly signed regional route 21 in Port Glasgow (referred to in council documents as R21).

Some cycle parking stands are needed outside the shops and cafés in Kilmacolm, especially on Lochwinnoch Road near the cycle path access.

Is this construction next to the library entrance meant to be cycle parking? Some conventional stands nearer the road would be more welcome.

Cycle parking next to a bridge on the cycle path. This might be better positioned near the shops or round the front of the pub.

Cycle parking at the pub/restaurant. There is a car park on the opposite side of the building. BICYCLES Kindly note that articles are left at owners risk

A direction sign pointing towards the railway path access point.

A single cycle parking stand at the newsagent's shop.

A lone cycle parking stand next to the postbox.

The cycle parking at Inverkip station is very close to the fence, limiting locking options.

The path gets narrower and bumpier, and stays like this until Inverkip, with parts narrowed further by vegetation.

A section of path that has been washed out between Lunderston Bay and Inverkip.

"End of Cycle Route 500 yards" - not so much end of route as path gets narrower and bumpier.

Cycle parking stands at Lunderston Bay. All the signs on this section of route say NCN 75 rather than 753.

Some car parking spaces have been painted on the cycleway, but still motorists take more space than they've been given!

The cycleway is interrupted by a tree, so cyclists have to cross the gutter to get around.

Congestion at the toucan crossing across the A8, and a rather poor surface crossing over to the quayside.

A shared-use footway, but where does it end? UPDATE 2017: There is now an "End of Cycle Route" on the back of the round sign.

The road through the housing estate has a shared-use footway on one side.

The waterfront path approaching Newark Castle

Quite a nice piece of pathway along the shore heading towards Newark Castle and Port Glasgow. The lower height reduces traffic noise from the adjacent A8 dual carriageway.

A mound of earth and boulders at entrance to park. Better to use pedestrian gate to the side instead.

Low bridge over path linking main road through Woodhall and road to Kelburn Park. There are steps on the other side of the bridge, but it is easy enough to use the grass slopes to the sides to wheel down, or to use the ramped path to the we ... [more]

NCN 75 cycle path on former railway trackbed at Kilmacolm, looking towards Bridge of Weir and Paisley. This location previously had a more restrictive access barrier.
