Braeside, Greenock

Braeside is a neighbourhood situated on the far west side of Greenock, in Inverclyde, Scotland.

It has two primary schools in its vicinity, Ravenscraig and St. Gabriels, a high school Inverclyde Academy as well as a special school for handicapped children, Glenburn. Like many of Greenock's estates it is named after the farm which once stood on its site.

During drainage work in 1955 a cow horn was found, about 4 feet (1.2 m) below ground level. It contained around sixty Scottish coins dating from 1543 to around 1570, implying that the hoard was buried in the mid 1570s. The earlier coins date from the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots, and testoons and other coins are from the reign of James VI of Scotland. The horn disintegrated, and while some of the coins were given to children and have not been traced, 20 coins were placed in the collection of the Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh, and 30 went to the McLean Museum in Greenock.[1]
