Garvochs Farm

Published: 10 Oct 2022

Garvochs Farm is a ruinous former farm located in Greenock, Scotland.

The farm is located on the banks of Loch Thom and dates back to the early 1800s. The building forms a square "U" shaped structure with the main central section being the home. The two opposing sections would have been byres or cowsheds.

The farm would have operated on land to the rear and also directly in front in an area that is now taken over by the Loch Thom reservoir. The construction of Loch Thom would have certainly affected the operation of the farm by reducing the amount of usable land.

It is believed the farm was still operational until the late 1980s at which point it became abandoned. Since its abandonment, the building has fast deteriorated into the ruin we see today.
