The Greenock Cut, a remarkable engineering feat, is a canal in Inverclyde, Scotland, designed to bring a freshwater supply from Loch Thom to Greenock. Built in the 19th century, it spans 7.5 miles and is carved into the hills, offering panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. This aqueduct was constructed as a response to the growing population and industrialization, providing a reliable water source for the booming shipbuilding industry in Greenock. The path alongside the Cut is now a popular walking and cycling route, offering both historical insights and scenic vistas of the River Clyde and beyond.
