Inverclyde (Inbhir Chluaidh in Gaelic) borders onto Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire, and is otherwise surrounded by the Firth of Clyde. Its landward area is bordered by the Kelly, North and South Routen burns to the south west, separating Wemyss Bay and Skelmorlie, North Ayrshire, part of the River Gryfe and the Finlaystone Burn to the south-east. The name derives from the extinct barony of Inverclyde (1897) conferred upon Sir John Burns of Wemyss Bay and his heirs.

Caley to the Coast: Rothesay by Wemyss Bay (Oakwood Library of Railway History) This railway's role in land transport is complemented - and largely explained, by its place in the story of the development of Clyde ferry services. In bringing these two elements together, and relating them so clearly to their local and national context, Archie Clark has crafted a book with a broad appeal both to students of transport history and to those with a more general interest in the development of the west of Scotland. The railway to Wemyss Bay continues to perform its traditional function of maintaining an essential link with the Rothesay ferry. Indeed, the terminal building and the linked pier and station are a firm reminder that the concept of integrated transport is not a modern invention. The branch's wider role, as part of the Strathclyde Passenger Transport network and its continuing evolution is symbolised by the replacement of the original 'Blue Trains' and new stations on the line.
