NS2982 : Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh

near to Helensburgh, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh
Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh
The picture was taken from the junction with Millig Street. In 1777, James Colquhoun founded this town in what was previously the barony of Malligs (spelled variously at different times), and named it after his wife Helen (hence Helensburgh, Millig Street, Colqhoun Street).

A route called the Three Lochs Way passes through Craigendoran (NS3181 : Cardross Road, Craigendoran), and follows the main road (Cardross Road / East Clyde Street) from there into Helensburgh. The route then heads uphill, following Colquhoun Street. Not far uphill from the point from which the present photograph was taken, the route makes a small detour around Helensburgh Upper Station: see NS2983 : Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh.
