"I simply had to go." Great Cumbrae Island by planxty
Great Cumbrae Island Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 22 photos
I don't get to Scotland anywhere near as much as I would like to and then it is normally to Glasgow or Edinburgh. I would normally not have occasion to visit the small seaside town of Largs although I did so for the wedding of two dear friends and had a wonderful time.
When the usual Scottish mist, rain and everything else lifted (this was the summer after all) I could see an island which I was told was Great Cumbrae and my delightful hosts where I was staying told me I really should visit if I got a chance and a break in the weather. I resolved to do just that and settled down to wait for some sunshine. Sunshine might be stretching a point but one day when the weather was not too evil, I jumped on the ferry, took off and had a wonderful day on a fascinating place with rather a lot of history and some typically friendly Scots hospitality.
If you are in the area, I suggest you do the same.
- Pros:Lots of history, friendly hospitality.
- Cons:The Scottish weather, what else!
- In a nutshell:Well worth a daytrip.
