Spectacular Scotland – Millport Isle of Cumbrae trip in pictures

Millport is a small and only town on the isle of Cumbrae just off the west coast of Scotland. This island offers amazing views of Arran mountains, ocean and near by islands. This island is so near and yet so far from Glasgow and Edinburgh .. Check out the pictures they speak for themselves ..

Where is Millport – Isle of Cumbrae ?

Millport is a small and only town on the Isle of Cumbrae. This island (only 10.5 miles around) is just off the west coast of  Scotland.

This island offers great view of the ocean, near by islands (Bute) and mountains (Arran). When you drive around the island apart from spectacular views, you will also see rabbits on the roads and beautiful birds by the sea side. 🙂 .. Interesting isn’t it ?

How to reach there ?

From Glasgow, you can drive down to the town of Largs and then can take a ferry to the isle (ferry will take only 8 min). For more details click here.

Things to do

Rent a bicycle and take a tour of the island, drive around the island and enjoy the view, experience peace at the war memorial, enjoy diving or other water sports, collect sea shells, play golf, see cathedral of the isles, spot birds and so on. Millport has something to offer to everybody.

My inputs

Well..  this place is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. If you do not believe me check out some of the pictures below.  And the fact that it can be covered within a day if you are visiting from Glasgow or Edinburgh makes it my favorite.

So the next time you are in Glasgow or Edinburgh, plan a day trip to Millport 🙂 ..
