We come over on our yacht a few times each year for music, service, or something else. It's a real gem and a step into another world - a real pleasant experience. Also dogs most welcome - Archie appreciates!

Came in off the boat for the service last Sunday - sunny day, pretty full church, very welcoming, and a nice service. Even Archie was made most welcome and he got a blessing!

We took a wee walk up the hill and walked down the street to the cathedral. Nice folks on the street. We met two people that were helpful. Cathedral inside was nice and wee. Burial grounds are worth a look too.

While staying with family in Glasgow we decided to visit Largs. After looking around Largs we went to the ferry dock and bought return tickets to Millport. They are quite reasonable in price. Once arriving and Largs and walking half a mile we then discovered that walking into the town from the ferry dock was 4 miles. We was not... More

I was here for the weekend for a retreat including the Sunday morning service. Being such a tiny cathedral it is much more intimate than most of the vast cathedrals. The congregation were welcoming and the Sunday morning service was a traditional Episcopalian Eucharist. It's definitely worth visiting for a service or just to have a look around. It's open...

This was announced as the smallest Cathedral and it was very tiny, but well maintained and was still a worshipping congregation (we attended on Sunday). The setting is idyllic, and I can only imagine the different views you can have along the main walkway leading to the Cathedral. There is a mowed labyrinth next to the Cathedral.

Since I first visited Millport 60 years ago until my last trip there 15 years ago, the Cathedral was boarded up and abandoned. It was great to be able to see inside the building I had walked horses around in my youth.
