Have you heard of Greenock?
If you haven’t, could you please put aside the ticking clock?
I am here you see, to take a slice of your time,
I know you are important and wasting your precious resource would be a crime.
But then, how can I not enlighten you about this magnificent port,
About its history, the hidden gems and the mysteries that hold fort!
A traditional pipers welcome awaits you there,
Trust me when I say that is one of the world’s fanciest fare.
Encircled by the magnificent views across to the mountains and beyond,
To the to and fro ships that share with the land an unspoken bond.
History says that the name means a sunny land,
To me however, it seems a land which was touch by a magic wand.
Then there’s another school that speaks about a local song – The Green Oak Tree,
However let me ask you not to strain your eyes as no green oak can ever be spotted here by thee.
It evolved from being a small fishing village to a luxurious and natural deepawater port,
The friendliness and character for which Scotland is well renowned will make this city the one you shall forever dote.
It boasts of viewpoints like Long Long, Holy Loch , Loch Goil, Gareloch, the Argyll Hills and a number of Munros on a clear day,
An ideal for lovers, for it makes them fall in love with each other in a uniquely new way.
The luxurious cruises by the quay, when the sky turns orange and blue,
Will leave you to wonder, how little mankind knows of this hue.
Sipping on the world’s finest scotch, Black Dog, then you shall try to soak in all that lies before you,
Trust me the mix of luxurious drinks and fine living on the cruise is a novelty that blesses very few.
They say Greenock is un spoilt by the vices of the human race,
It is thus a city filled with beauty, elegance and grace,
What made our ride all the more enjoyable was the company of a drink just as rich, royal and luxurious,
With a 130 year old history, the Black Dog brand indeed has a heritage which is glorious.
Go discover the Scottish waters, dine by the quay,
Make you however that to Black Dog’s tune you sway.
Trust me, nothing will make the getaway more memorable,
Than having Scotland in the backdrop, the presence of your loved one and the bottle of Black Dog on the table!!!!
