Cove  Dunbartonshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Cove like this:

Cove, a charming watering-place in Roseneath parish, Dumbartonshire, to the right or E of the entrance to Loch Long, 1¼ mile WNW of Kilcreggan, and 6 miles by water WNW of Greenock. Of modern growth, and conjoined as a police burgh with Kilcreggan, it comprises a number of neat villas and cottages. At it are a post office, with money order, savings' bank, and telegraph departments, a steamboat pier, and Craigrownie quoad sacra church. See Kilcreggan and Craigrownie.
