The Isle of Cumbrae

There is so much for everyone on the Isle of Cumbrae, Scotland’s most accessible island.

It’s just an 8 minute ferry crossing from Largs on the Ayrshire mainland.

Largs itself is just an hour away from Glasgow by car, train or bus. A bus service meets every ferry arrival to whisk you in to Millport town centre, the only town on the island.

The Cathedral of the Isles is a short walk from the beach at Millport.

There is an ever growing list of things to see and do on the island. With 1,000 bicycles for hire it has never been easier to take in the spectacular views to be found around every corner.

Golf and lawn bowls are on offer as well as water-sports and wild swimming. Enjoy a country walk or a wander along the safe, sandy beach; being sure to get your photo at crocodile rock.

There are two museums on the island detailing Cumbrae’s history, an aquarium and countless cafes and restaurants to enjoy an ice cream or something more substantial.

Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife, especially the seals that like to swim in the bay.
