Explore the charm of Millport with its cafés, shops and bars. Cumbrae attracts seals, migrant birds from around the world and the flora on the island is equally varied. A visit to the island’s Marine Research Station with a museum and aquarium is a must. With an 11 mile flat coastal road around the island, it is ideal for cycling and walking, with many opportunities for picnics. In addition, there are many walks over the hills in the centre of the island, with fantastic views of the Clyde Estaury and surrounding islands of Arran and Bute. The island has an 18 hole golf course, a bowling club with three greens and both a full sized football pitch and a 5-a-side astra turf pitch. There are two play areas for children under 12 and a National Water Sports Centre for the water sport enthusiast. The island also hosts the smallest cathedral in Scotland, as well as a house with the smallest front in the Uk.
