Argylls' Parade, Port Glasgow

The short path linking Port Glasgow's Shore Street with the Tesco Supermarket is called Argylls' Parade.

This is in honour of the regiment of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders who have strong links with the area.  Many local memorial plaques bear testament to this.

In 2013 the Regiment of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders paraded along the path named after them and you can see the video of this on YouTube.  Check out the Regimental mascot, a Shetland pony which has a fascinating history

The history of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders can be found at their museum in Stirling here.  A pathway named after a wonderful part of local and national history!

For more information about local people who may have served during both World Wars then check out Inverclyde's Great War - a wonderful site full of information about both wars.
