Getting Here

James Watt Dock is situated on the south bank of the River Clyde in Inverclyde (a small local authority area to the west of Glasgow and situated on the south bank of the Clyde Estuary) with spectacular views across to Argyll and the Scottish Highlands. It offers immediate access to motorway, air, sea and rail links to the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. Glasgow is 30 miles by train and 40 minutes by road. Glasgow International Airport is 20 minutes drive from the site and Prestwick International Airport is an hour and a half away.

From Glasgow/East: Head west along the M8 onto the A8 towards Greenock. Follow the A8 through Port Glasgow and along the dual carriageway past the Arnold Clark Ford and Vauxhall dealerships. Passing under a railway bridge, take the next right turn across the carriageway and into the James Watt Dock site, entering just before the 'A' listed Sugar Warehouse.

From South/West: Following the A78 head through Greenock towards Port Glasgow. Macdonalds, the Titan Crane and Sugar Warehouse will be on your left - ¾ km beyond Macdonalds turn left into the site at the entrance immediately beyond the 'A' listed Sugar Warehouse.

By Road: The M8 motorway provides access to central Glasgow, Edinburgh and all other Scottish cities.

By Rail: A frequent rail service to Paisley (20 minutes) and Glasgow (30 minutes) gives passengers the opportunity to interlink with mainline destinations throughout the UK with a local 13 station network.

By Air: Glasgow International Airport operates an extensive range of scheduled flights to Continental Europe, North America and the rest of the UK. Glasgow Prestwick International Airport in Ayrshire also operates regular services to the UK, Ireland and several European cities. Both airports operate freight and cargo services to worldwide destinations.

By Sea: Greenock's Ocean Terminal is one of the UK's principal container ports. It is also a regular port of call for international cruise liners. Inverclyde offers regular ferry services from Gourock to Dunoon, Helensburgh and Kilcreggan and from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay, Isle of Bute.
