By the middle of the nineteenth century, steamers were calling at Garelochhead and the villages of the Rosneath peninsula, bringing in visitors and allowing prosperous Glaswegians to live in the country and commute to the city along the river. When a railway station was opened at Whistlefield in 1896 combined steamer and rail trips were introduced, attracting more day-trippers to the picturesque lochside villages of Portincaple, Clynder, Rosneath, Kilcreggan and Cove (all of which are featured). As well as the likes of Garelochhead smiddy and the inn at Whistlefield, there are pictures of the boat building yards at Clynder and Rosneath and the military hospital at Portkil, built by American forces in 1942.
