Make 2014 the year you discover the Isle of Great Cumbrae

It's the "Jewel in the Clyde" and is Scotland's most accessible island, reached in just 8.5 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. There is a ferry service every 15 minutes in the summer and every 30 during the winter.  

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.

The island has the UK's smallest cathedral, the house with the smallest frontage, Scotland's National Water-sports Centre and over 1000 bikes for hire. 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. If you have been here before then you know the pleasures that await your next visit. There are new shops to discover and new events throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2014.
