Millport is the sole town on the island of Great Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde off the west coast and close to the beautiful islands of Bute and Arran. It’s also home to the smallest cathedral in Britain, the Cathedral of the Isles, built in 1851 with money from the Earl of Glasgow and designed by William Butterfield, the great gothic revivalist famous for Rugby School and Keble College, Oxford. Millport lies on the south side of the island looking into Millport Bay, a settlement developed in the 18th century as a base for customs officers to help monitor the passage of ships into the Clyde. Much of the town dates back to the Victorian era when it became a popular tourist spot for visitors from Glasgow.
