Gourock Outdoor Pool is a salt water public lido in Gourock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. It is the oldest heated swimming pool in Scotland.



The pool is heated and uses salt water taken from the River Clyde. The water is filtered, cleaned and maintained at a minimum temperature of 29C. Facilities include a gym and a children’s pool. The lido opens from May to the first week in September.

The pool is managed by Inverclyde Leisure.


The lido was opened in 1909, and the water heating system was installed in 1969.

The pool was closed at the end of the 2010 summer season for a major improvement project, due to be completed before the end of 2011. The existing changing accommodation has been demolished and will be replaced with a more modern leisure centre, incorporating an enlarged gymnasium and lift access from the street level down to the new changing accommodation and the upgraded pool.
