A SONG about Inverclyde's history penned by a Port Glasgow teacher is racking up the views on YouTube.

Ian MacGillivray, who teaches modern studies at St Stephen's High School, wrote a track called Home to Me which covers seminal moments in Inverclyde's history, including everything from Norsemen arriving in the 13th century and Gourock's Granny Kempock stone, to the heroes of WWII.

Ian recorded the track with help from friends guitarist Eric Lindsay and fiddle player Jim Ward in 2018.

Together with a couple of work colleagues, Ian recently decided to make a video for the tune and posted it online along with another for a song called Last of the Light.

In just a few days, the videos have attracted almost 400 views.

Ian said: "The reaction has been really good.

"I'm stunned by how many people have contacted me about the songs.

"It's great to get my music onto another platform."
