Towns & Villages

    Millport is the 'capital' of Cumbrae, a small island off the Ayrshire coast.

    Millport is the only town on the island which is just offshore from Largs on the Ayrshire coast. The town curves around an attractive hilly bay on the south coast.

    The town possesses Britain’s smallest cathedral, the Cathedral of the Isles, which was completed in 1851 to a design by William Butterfield, one of the leading Gothic revival architects of the day. 

    A mile or so back along the south shore to the east is the Robertson Museum & Aquarium, where visitors can learn about the wide variety of marine life and local habitats on the island.

    Within Millport you'll find places to eat out, grocery stores, a garage and bike hire shops. Look out for the crocodile rock, a jagged rock painted to look like a crocodile, on the shore.
