The Isle of Great Cumbrae is Scotland’s “Jewel in the Clyde” with something to suit everyone, no matter what you age or interest. There are a surprising number of things to see and do on the island and you can be as active as you like or just decide to completely relax, unwind and let the world go by. With around 1,000 bicycles for hire on the Island, all the family can join in the pleasure of cycling and taking in the spectacular views to be found around each corner. There are lots of things for kids to do from messing about in rock-pools to playing on our safe, sandy beaches or having fun on the indoor and outdoor amusements. For adults there are the shops, pubs, an 18 hole golf course with spectacular views and an excellent bowling club with two greens and an putting green. There are also plenty of places to eat out around the town.
