Map of Dunrod Hill mapTerrain description

Rising to 298m above Greenock this is a classic large area of open moorland. There is a lot of contour and rock detail with extra interest added by various bits of industrial archeology. During the Industrial Revolution the area was used to supply water to Greenock leaving a number of reservoirs both large and small, and an 8km aqueduct, the Greenock Cut, running round the foot of the hillside. Amazing views of the Clyde coast on a clear day!  The Greenock Cut visitor centre has toilets, educational displays and a small cafe.
