Millport Centre - Isle of Cumbrae, Scotland

Fancy the chance of staying on a Scottish island on an all-inclusive basis, with a variety of activities suitable for all the family? Such unique opportunity is available with Real Family Holidays, who operate an activity centre on a small island off the west coast of Scotland just an 8-minute ferry crossing from the mainland; a great adventure to kick start your family holiday.

The centre itself is just metres from the sea, and the waters play a big part in the activities on offer, including boat trips, snorkelling, rock pooling and even the opportunity to build shelters and campfires overlooking the sea. Many activities are included as part of the all-inclusive package (many suitable for those aged 3-16 years), there are some that incur an extra cost and all are overseen by an experienced tutor, but as it is your holiday, you choose what you want to take part in, of what takes place during the week you stay.

The centre has a selection of twin and triple rooms, so large families will be split but there are many communal area both inside and out, catering to the wild or mild weather of the Scottish islands. But it really is outside where are the fun takes place, not only as part of the organised activity programme but also the wildlife and scenery all around you, so make sure you have your binoculars and cameras to hand!


Millport Centre is located on the Isle of Cumbrae off Scotland's west coast, around 33 miles from Glasgow. It will take around 50-minutes by car or a 55-minute train journey to the ferry, followed by a short 8-minute ferry ride then 5-mins by car or bus to get to the centre.
