Description: Gourock and the Firth of Clyde. Strathclyde Region. View over Gourock to Holy Loch. Craigmuschat Quarry (disused) in left of centre. The Firth of Clyde (and Loch Long opposite and Gare Loch) is a drowned ice-scoured valley. The area would have changed little since the last glaciers disappeared, about 10,000 years ago. Crushed rock aggregate was extracted from the Craigmuschat Quarry from an irregular sill-like body of feldsparpyhric trachyte. It has subsequently been used for waste disposal.
