Millport is the capital and largest population centre on the island of Great Cumbrae. Situated just off the Ayrshire coast in the Firth of Clyde, this is Scotland's most accessible island. Ferries travel here every fifteen minutes in summer, taking less than ten minutes to reach Great Cumbrae from the seaside town of Largs.
Millport rose to prominence in the Victorian age, with many fine period villas and tenements west and east of the old harbour. Its independent shops include a newsagent, grocer, craft and gift shops, clothes shops, electrical and hardware stores. There are three cycle hire shops, reflecting Cumbrae’s popularity with cyclists.
