Of all the places we visited, Cumbrae Island was definitely one of our favorites. We stayed at an adorable little village in Scotland called West Kilbride, and our hostess recommended we see Cumbrae island.
So we headed off early in the morning on the ferry and hoped it wouldn’t be too chilly since I’d gotten rid of all my jackets. That’s what happens when you put all your stuff in one carry-on sized suitcase.
But even though it started off cold and gray, it became beautifully sunny when we got there. And I have a ton of pictures to prove it.
When we got there, we thought about being cheapskates and just walking all the way around the island (about 10 miles), but decided to take a bus into the town of Millport and rent bicycles.
It was an adorable little town (and super cheap housing prices!) and we were almost convinced to buy a beach house there for summer vacations.
It was so much fun to cycle around the island on the most beautiful day ever and feel the fresh air and see the gorgeous scenery. I might have enjoyed it a little.
We stopped and ate lunch overlooking this view.
Then it was off for more cycling and enjoying the view.
What can I say, except that it was gorgeous and you should go there if you ever get the chance?
