Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Auchmountain Glen



Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Auchmountain Glen in the Strone area of Greenock by Glasgow, Scotland.
The Glen was donated to the town in 1887 by a family of local landowners, the Shaw Stewarts, and became a popular visitor attraction after squads of workers named the Belville Boys, a group of unemployed shipyard workers from around Greenock, nicknamed the Auchmountain Boys, built a clubhouse, bridges and formal paths to enable walkers to view its waterfalls and craggy slopes. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
