Greenock, the ‘sunny place’ on the Port’s doorstep

Free French Memorial & Lyle Hill Viewpoint

The Free French Memorial monument on Lyle Hill in Greenock, in the shape of the Cross of Lorraine combined with an anchor, was raised by subscription as a memorial to the Free French naval vessels that sailed from the Firth of Clyde to take part in the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II.

The viewpoint at Lyle Hill also boasts vistas of Loch Long, Holy Loch, Loch Goil, Gareloch, the Arygll Hills and a number of Munros on a clear day.
