Site of Scott Lithgow's Glen and Kingston shipyards :: Shared Description

Scott Lithgow's Glen and Kingston yards stood between Anderson Street and the Greenock boundary.

The east end of the vast site is occupied by a Tesco superstore. The west end (west of the realigned A8 dual carriageway) is now a housing estate which is still being developed at the time of writing in September 2013.

The central part of the site, east and west of the Glen Burn, has been in a brownfield state for many years, but is now being developed, with a B & Q store and a drive-through Costa Coffee currently under construction. This construction work required temporary realignment of the Glen Burn.

At the time of writing, one of the main Glen Yard gateways and a section of the perimeter wall still stand at Belhaven Street (which is now an overgrown cul-de-sac), although the gate is a wire mesh construction and not the original bright red solid design that I recall from the 70s and 80s. A few bricked-up "clocking-in" gates also survive. A fading hand-written sign showing the way to "Scotts" can also be seen.
