Branchton, Inverclyde

Branchton is an area within the Scottish town of Greenock, in Inverclyde. Tenements used to dominate the area, which acquired a reputation as socially disadvantaged, but a recent cash injection means that the area is being redeveloped with new housing and community projects. Ravenscraig Hospital is to the north of the housing, with its own access directly from the main road. Branchton railway station is on the Wemyss Bay to Glasgow Central line.
