  1. I was searching Clyde maps and stumbled on your post. I’ve not seen the River drawn as far seaward as Gourock before. Just had a look at other educational info online. None seem to show the key differences of the Clyde. The most interesting part for me is the ‘river’ ends where the water stops flowing in one direction, this happens at the tidal weir at Glasgow Green, although still marked as ‘river’ until Greenock it’s actually an estuary (inner Clyde estuary) until Greenock where the mouth of the river meets the deeper coastal waters of the Firth if Clyde. This is an interesting article by the editor of Estuarine, Clyde marked at the end. ahttps://www.heraldscotland.com/news/12490387.the-difference-between-river-estuary-and-firth/
