Millport

Millport, Isle of Cumbrae 



Millport is the next port of call after Largs - the popular seaside town in Scotland.
As Millport is in the Isle of Cumbrae you will have to travel on the ferry service which runs from Largs each day and is around a ten minute journey.
Once the Caledonian Macbrayne ferry docks at the isle there will be buses waiting to take you into Millport, which is one of the prettiest islands to visit in Scotland.
The beach is simply beautiful, where you can have a paddle in the sea and can take the kids to build some sandcastle's.
There are plenty of pubs and cafe's across from the beach promenade where you can get a nice lite bite or a refreshing drink.
If you're after a hearty meal make your way to the Royal George Hotel, which has a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence and serves quality Scottish food.
Millport was renowned as a biking island where for years people have seen the best of the island  by riding round the picturesque place.
Largs has been a Scottish bolt hole for Scots since the fair weekend started in the 1960's on the second weekend in July - as a break for the working population of Scotland.
Since then Largs is visited by families on summer days, elderly people and tourists which are attracted to the area for its sea views and legendary fish teas. 
Nardini's is a well known cafe in the seaside town which sells highly recommended ice cream or as customers who been have said: "the best In Scotland".
There is a restaurant form of Nardini's on the front (across from Largs beach) which sells fish teas, and other main courses such as prawn salads and Italian style sandwiches.
Both places are worth visiting on a summer or spring day in bonny Scotland.
