Cappielow is a fair sized ground, full of character, but beginning to show its age. The Grandstand on one side of the ground, is a single tiered, all seated stand, which has a number of supporting pillars in front. On its roof are a set of unusual striking floodlights. Opposite is the Cowshed as it is known, which is a classic looking stand and is unusual in the respect that it has seating at the front of it and terracing at its rear. Both ends are open to the elements. The Wee Dublin End, is a former terrace, with white benches bolted onto it, which makes it look out of place. This end is normally not used on match days. Beyond can be seen a large crane, which is reminiscent of the ship building days on the Clyde. At the other end is the small Sinclair Street Terrace, that has a small clock behind it. Located in two corners of the ground on either side of the Cowshed are a pair of modern floodlights.
Away fans are housed on one side of the Grandstand, towards the Dublin End of the ground.There are a fair few pillars in this stand that may impede your view and the leg room is on the tight side. In addition visiting supporters are also given a portion of the Cowshed on the opposite side of the ground, which includes part of the terrace. The latter is an experiment by the Club to see if this will help boost the atmosphere at Cappielow. For larger games then the Wee Dublin End can also be allocated for away fans to use. A visit to Cappielow is normally a relaxed day out and the Morton fans do their best to get behind their team.
The Club have bought the Kerr Reid Stand from the St Mirren, who have now left Love Street for a new stadium. It is planned that this will allow the Club to cover the Wee Dublin End of the ground.
The Norseman Bar is located right by the ground on Sinclair Street and is popular with both home and away fans. It can get quite busy on matchdays, but it is still the favoured pre-match venue. If you have a bit more time on your hands then you could journey into the centre of Greenock, which is about a mile away. Not far from Greenock Central Railway Station on Cathcart Street is a Wetherspoons pub, called the James Watt. This pub is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
From Glasgow head on the M8 and then A8 towards Greenock (along which you get a fine view of Castle Rock in Dumbarton). Follow the A8 into Greenock and you will reach the ground on your left. It's just after going under a bridge with Picollo's fish & chip shop on the corner. There is a car park opposite the main entrance, which costs £3, otherwise street parking.
The nearest railway station to Cappielow Park is Cartsdyke which lies on the Glasgow Central – Gourock line. The journey from Glasgow takes around 40 minutes and then the ground is about a five minute walk from Cartsdyke Station. Brian Scott informs me; 'Assuming that you are coming from the Glasgow direction – away fans heading for the terrace should leave the platform and go under the railway bridge. Walk down this road and turn right at the end. The ground is down this road on the right. All other fans, stay on the south side of the railway line and walk up the road, about 50 yards, and turn left into Carwood Street. At the end of the road, turn left and go under the railway line. The ticket office and turnstiles are directly on the left'.
