It has a weather vane, a fog bell, a fog light and clock. The lower section is interesting and contains an amazing amount of detail. The drinking fountain has a beautiful lion's head and crest with the words "God Speed" - very apt considering many there would be going on a journey, as well as being part of Greenock's own motto. There was also a letter box. The Beacon itself was made at Rankin & Blackmore's Eagle Foundry in Greenock (Baker Street).
