Rosneath Peninsula West Coast Heritage Trail

This fantastic trail celebates Rosneath Peninsula’s remarkable heritage, highlighting the architecture of Cove and Kilcreggan.

Cove and Kilcreggan is thought to have the largest concentration of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson-attributed architecture outside Glasgow, and Historic Scotland’s website lists a remarkable total of 88 listed buildings in this small area.

The trail starts at Kilcreggan’s pier – the oldest wooden pier on the Clyde still in regular use – and runs to the Barbour cemetery. Along the way, there is information about Kilcreggan village, the Kilcreggan Hotel, Cove Burgh Hall, the gates to the former Hartfield House, the Thomson-designed Dhualt bridge, Knockderry House Hotel and several of the Victorian mansions which are such a feature of the area.

As well as Thomson, there is information about architects Campbell Douglas, James Chalmers, James Sellars, John Honeyman, William Leiper and William Motherwell.

You can download the Rosneath Peninsula West Coast Heritage Trail leaflet or pick up copies locally, including Cove Shop, Cove Burgh Hall, Cove Library, Knockderry House Hotel, the Commodore Hotel in Helensburgh, the Ardencaple Hotel in Rhu and Helensburgh Railway Station.
