Inverclyde sculptures

Inverclyde District, on the south bank of the Firth of Clyde, is home to many modern sculptures, many of which were commissioned by the local Urban Regeneration Company Riverside Inverclyde LinkExternal link to brighten up and help delineate the approaches to the towns of Port Glasgow, Greenock and Gourock.

Other significant sculptures can be found along the Clyde waterfront and also on National Cycle Network Routes 75 and 753 which run through the district.

In addition to these modern sculptures, there are a number of more traditional statues to be found, including one of the District's most famous son, James Watt.
