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.
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.
