Renfrew

... invites you to cross the mighty River Clyde, Scotland.

Renfrew, a town with some twenty thousand inhabitants, lends it's name to the surrounding area of Renfrewshire, which includes towns from Gourock in the West to Eaglesham in the East.

Renfrew Ferry has run for centuries, transporting passengers across the River Clyde to Yoker. As recently as 1984 a chain operated service was still in use. This service, which began over 200 years prior in 1782, was then replaced by a modern passenger ferry. This is one of the few remaining ferry points for passengers wishing to cross the Clyde.

Renfrew is the home of the Royal Stewarts, a clan who is said to have dominated Scotland for more than three centuries. Bonnie Prince Charlie claimed to be the Baron de Renfrew for many years after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Today, the Baron de Renfrew is one of the titles of the Prince of Wales.
