Land at McPherson Drive - Sold

This superb 1.75-acre site was approved by Inverclyde Council in June 2021 to create 22 x 3 bedroom semi-detached houses on the site of the former McPherson Centre in upper Gourock and is available to purchase.

The land is bounded by Tower Drive, Jacobs Drive and McPherson Drive, with the centre having now been demolished and the site cleared and ready for development.

The computer-generated images attached provide an idea of the overall size, location and house style approved by Inverclyde Council. 

Recent nearby housing developments include Kirn Gardens by Merchant Homes and McTaggart's Cowal Court Development at Cowal View.

Gourock is a thriving town with high demand for residential units. As a result, this plot of land is expected to be popular with developers and buyers alike, with Bowman Rebecchi retaining a waiting list of interested parties for potential buyers.


The site is located in upper Gourock, with access from the A770 main road and can be accessed from Barrhill Road or Tower Drive. 

For tourists, ferry services to Argyll and Bute are nearby, as-is Greenock Ocean Terminal, for the embarkation of cruise ships, as well as Kip Marina, for access to the beautiful sailing waters of the Clyde. The unique and iconic Gourock Outdoor Pool is a short drive.

Inverclyde has five great golf courses, all with stunning views – Gourock Golf Club, Greenock Golf Club, Port Glasgow Golf Club, Whinhill Golf Club and Kilmacolm Golf Club  – all renowned for their warm and friendly welcome.

Businesses in Gourock include Amazon and CalMac Ferries headquarters, with the main Inverclyde Royal Hospital less than a mile away in the neighbouring town of Greenock.


Gourock is located approximately 28 miles west of Glasgow on Scotland's West Coast, with a residential population in excess of 10,000 persons and a core catchment population of approximately 270,000 persons, all within the authority of Inverclyde Council.

With a rich maritime heritage, Inverclyde is looking again to the River Clyde to support its future growth, with Greenock Ocean Terminal developing a new pontoon and visitor centre to support its 140,000 cruise liner passengers per annum, with Inverclyde seeing over 500,000 visitors per annum.
