Welcome to The Nook, Millport, Cumbrae

The perfect place for a cosy Scottish retreat and short break. Fisherman’s Nook is a ground floor apartment, on the sea shore, close to the harbour at Millport. It originally formed part of a row of tiny single storey fishermen’s cottages, (the upstairs rooms were added later), probably dating back to the 18th century. In front of the property, above the rocks, is a small area of grass where the fishermen’s nets were once laid out to dry but today makes a sunny spot to sit, drink a glass of wine and enjoy the spectacular views of the islands of Wee Cumbrae and Arran.
Fisherman’s Nook is situated off a quiet road, just a few minutes walk to the main sandy beach where tropical palms front the promenade and yachts are moored out in the bay. From here you can explore the charm of a seaside town with shops, bars and restaurants. In the winter months a colony of seals live in the bay and can be spotted in the sea just in front of Fisherman’s Nook. 

For walking, cycling, exploring the rock pools or fishing, on the lovely  Isle of Cumbrae,  Fisherman’s Nook makes a good starting point and a place to relax in at the end of an active day. An ideal location for artists. 

A holiday on the Isle of Cumbrae starts with a 15 min ferry crossing from the holiday town of Largs, Ayrshire. The old-fashioned, laid-back pace of the island provides a welcome break from the daily hustle and bustle of life and a perfect place to unwind and enjoy life.

Drive, cycle or walk around the quiet coastal road that meanders around the 10 mile island. Stop at any time to explore the unspoilt natural beaches and marvel at the stunning views of the Isle of Arran, Isle of Bute, Mull of Kintyre and Wee Cumbrae.
