Greenock Cut
The Greenock Cut is an aqueduct built in the 19th century to convey water from the reservoir of Loch Thom to Greenock, for drinking water and for powering local industries. The Cut opened in 1827 and its engineer was Robert Thom. In 1845 it was supplemented by another aqueduct, the Kelly Cut, which linked Kelly Reservoir to the start of the Greenock Cut. The Cut was superseded by a tunnel in 1971 and is now a designated Ancient Monument. For more background and photographs please see the article by Thomas Nugent
