Long gone, visited after Gourock FBM after trip to Bute. Do not attempt a visit when Rangers are playing at home.

Visited on 10th May 2015 by jonglew. Condition: Probably destroyed.
Agreed this one will almost certainly not have survived the building of ASDA.

Visited on 31st October 2009 by agentmancuso. Condition: Destroyed.
Nothing to see here - now a well-defended concrete-floored warehouse yard. Don't try to visit on Saturdays when the nearby Temple Of Bigotry is being occupied.
