Kilchattan Bay offers glorious views out over the Clyde shipping lanes. With the aid of binoculars and or a camera with a zoom lens you can take an active interest in the types of vessels that pass by in the Firth of Clyde. Ships include cargo ships, oil tankers, naval vessels and particularly in the summer, a whole range of leisure craft including numerous small sailing yachts.
If you download an app for your phone you can track the details of all of these ship movements off Kilchattan Bay including the names of the craft, speed and destination etc.
Ship spotting at Kilchattan Bay really does offer you the chance to watch the world go by.
