The Crocodile Rock is probably the most famous of all the rock structures on the island.

The Crocodile Rock, Millport

It’s been around for millions of years, but just over 100 years ago a local by the name of Mr Brown was passing by after a lunchtime drink or two, or maybe three, and saw the bare rock as a crocodile (or so the story goes) and decided to set to work with a brush and paint. Over the years it has become a famous landmark that has attracted many generations of children to have their photograph taken with the Millport Crocodile.

You can find the crocodile on the beach just opposite the Dancing Midge Cafe

– that is, if he’s not nipped off for lunch himself!
