Great Cumbrae is the larger of the two islands known as The Cumbraes in the lower Firth of Clyde in western Scotland.The island comprises wide fields and the little holiday resort of Millport where you will find The National Watersports Centre and the Cathedral of the Isles - the smallest cathedral in Scotland. Other sights incluse The Wedge – a private residence which has the smallest frontage in the UK (the width of a front door), the Museum of the Cumbraes occupying part of the Garrison, and the Marine Biology Station. Located at Keppel Pier, the latter has an aquarium of sea creatures from the Firth of Clyde, and a museum which tells the story of the sea and of the Clyde area.
The island is on the Great Cumbrae Fault line that runs northeast to southwest. Fault lines form some interesting rock formations which have become popular with tourists including Crocodile rock, Indian's Face, Lion's Rock and Queen Victoria's Face. Several have been enhanced with colourful paint. Cumbrae's western coastline has fine examples of raised beaches. This occurs perhaps most notably in the area surrounding Bell Bay on the west coast - where the Islands highest waterfall, Horse Falls, plunges over the old sea cliffs.
