The ferry to the island of Great Cumbrae operates out of the resort of Largs, the town is an easy reach by either train or bus, both out of Glasgow. It’s not a long sailing for those who’s sea legs might not be up to scratch, by the time you’ve boarded and found a seat you are almost there.
The landing stage might seem a little out of the way but don’t worry a bus connects with the ferries and it’s a short journey along the edge of the island to Millport, the largest settlement. The town wraps around the bay and faces out into the firth of Clyde. Two small islets dot the bay, these are the Eileans, beyond is Little Cumbrae and further off is the tip of Arran.
