Millport is the only town on the island of Great Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde off the coast of North Ayrshire. The town is 4 miles south from the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry slipway. Tourism is an important aspect of the economy. Due to its small size, the island and its town are often linked in the minds of visitors and residents and Great Cumbrae is often referred to as Millport. The island offers views across to the Isle of Arran as well as of its smaller neighbour which lies barely a kilometre away, called Little Cumbrae. The Cumbraes are referred to as the Kumreyiar in the Norse Saga of Haakon Haakonarson. Millport has the smallest extant cathedral in the British Isles.
