Battery Park viewed from the Lyle Hill Viewpoint, Greenock
Lyle Hill affords superb views over the Firth of Clyde, and in this view
Strone Point and the entrance to Loch Long on the far side can be seen

The Cannons of Fort Matilda once stood in this area - hence the Battery Park connection.
It was extended with spoil from the Newton Street Railway Tunnel to form playing fields

Lyle Hill is named after Abram Lyle ... the inventor of Lyle's Golden Syrup ...
... and partner of Henry Tate in the Tate & Lyle company.
