    Newton Beach is the small shingle/sandy beach that lies below the promenade in the centre of Millport. With gently sloping sand into shallow water it is ideal for families and its intertidal rock pools add extra interest and fun while the stunning views of the Eileans, Little Cumbrae and the Clyde Estuary make the perfect backdrop.

    The beach is highly rated and has received a Beach Award from Keep Scotland Beautiful.

    The aquarium section has recently been renovated and now appears much more professional. The museum section is now more geared to kids and of less interest to the adult visitor than it used to be.

    Garrison House is an attractive building on the sea front overlooking the bay. There is a very good small museum on the ground floor covering the history of Millport. The cafe is good (eat in or out in the courtyard) and it has excellent toilets too.

    Worth a visit and it's free. The seats in the sunken garden in front of the building are a great place to drop out.

    ...cos I never get up early enough for sunrise.
    A great walk up from the town to get the most wonderful views, and the views at sunset are magnificent.

    A wonderfully unusual little landmark opposite a wonderful bay.
    Just hope the PC/Woke brigade don't get hold of it

    Well, in my mind. The mysterious, untranslatable engravings on the stone and the faerie nymphs dancing around at midnight on midsummer's day! And a lovely walk to get there

    My daughter loves it here, especially when there's no one else around. Need flip flops or the like to walk on the beach, but its a great paddling location, lovely views, lots of beach for the little one and a great place for a picnic

    Wow what a fascinating presentation of the history of Gin and it’s connection to Isle of Cumbrae. Amanda the Distillery Manager was so welcoming and knowledgeable. I was there with my friend Joyce. We tried 4 of the Gins, all very different, something for everyone. Our favourite was Nostalgin, beautifully smooth! You get a small gift too. Well worth a visit.
