Some call it “The Jewel in the Clyde” others “The Island of a thousand bicycles”

– and some just refer to it as “Our wee bit of paradise”

There’s so much for everyone on the Island of Great Cumbrae so why not come across in 2017 and decide for yourself.  From sailing, canoeing, wind-surfing and golf for the sports enthusiasts to leisurely walks, bowling or just relaxing on our safe, sandy beaches – you’ll find it all within the island. It’s just an 8.5 minute ferry crossing from Largs on the Ayrshire mainland and Largs is is just an hour away from Glasgow by car, train or bus, and a bus service meets every ferry arrival to whisk you in to Millport town centre.

Be sure to make 2017 the year you discover (or re-discover) the magic of Great Cumbrae.
