  It's the "Jewel in the Clyde" and is Scotland's most accessible island, reached in around 8 minutes from Largs on the Ayrshire coast.  In just over 60 minutes from Glasgow by car, bus or train you can be ready to board the ferry to a different world.

You'll step back in time to a peaceful island to enjoy safe sandy beaches in Millport, the island's only town. Relax with a stroll along a prom; take in the great views; eat out in cafes, pubs and restaurants, or just unwind and let the world go by. There's a good variety of shops, indoor and outdoor amusements and much, much more - so, if you haven't previously discovered the charm of Cumbrae, make sure you do in 2014.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2014.
