Surrounded by the Firth of Clyde, a large expanse of coastal water, Inverclyde is one of Scotland's smallest boroughs by population, although it is considered by some to be a larger part of Glasgow city. Its close proximity to Glasgow makes it the perfect area for commuters to live and a pleasant place it is too. Surrounded by water and stunning seascapes, Inverclyde is a water sports enthusiast's paradise with sailing, windsurfing and fishing all on the bill. There are also some first-class yacht havens and marinas in this corner of Scotland. For those who prefer to keep their feet on land, the amazing Lunderston Beach is the ideal rural getaway location, and it has won many clean beach awards as well as having playground and picnic spots where you can take advantage of the immense vistas. Like many parts of Scotland, a golf course is never far away with around six large, premier golf clubs and hotels to choose from.
