We are just an 8.5 min ferry trip from the mainland


The MV Loch Shira is the main CalMac ferry which operates betwen Largs on the Ayrshire coast and the Island of Great Cumbrae.

Throughout the year she maintains a service every 30 minutes taking passengers and vehicles on the short trip across to the island. During the summer months a second ferry operates on the route to provide a service every 15 minutes. From the ferry point on Cumbrae a bus service meets every ferry to take you on the short trip in to the town of Millport. The bus then returns from the town pier to take returing passengers to meet the next ferry.
