MILLPORT (Isle of Cumbray.)
THE Isles oE Cumbray (or Cumbrae) have been already noticed
on a preceding page, in the description of Buteshire. Millport
is a burgh, constituted 1S64, under the Act 23 and 24 Vic, cap. 00,
and is governed by commissioners and a senior and two junior
magistrates. It is chiefly resorted to for sea bathing, being charm-
ingly situated on the south side of the greater Cumbray, about four
miles from Largs, in Ayrshire, between which town, as well as
Greeuock and Glasgow, communication is maintained by means of
a regular service of steam-packets. The excellent harbour aud pier
here present perfect convenience for the landing or embarkation of
passengers. Ninety years ago thi3 place possessed only one dwel-
ling, the hut of a fisherman. The number of inhabitants in the two
Cuuibrays amounts at the present time to about eighteen hundred
and seventy, of whom a considerable proportion are resident in
Millport; and in the summer mouths, from the influx of visitors, a
life and bustle is exhibited which forms an agreeable contrast to the
quietude prevailing in other parts of the Isles. The village is gas-
lighted, a parochial board exists, a sheriff and small debts court
is held in March and September, and a cricket club and choral
society aro established. Pleasantly situated on the shore is a
beautiful marine pavilion, in the pointed style of architecture,
belonging to tne Earl df Glasgow, who is owner of nearly two-
thirds of the Isle, the remainder belonging to tbe Marquis of Bute.
Tho principal object of attraction is the Episcopal College and
Church, a benutiiul Gothic erection, situated on an eminence
overlooking tbe town and bay; an elegant spire surmounts the
church, and the grounds are extensive and laid out in lawns,
terraces, and parterres, which are adorned with the choicest flowers
and shrubs; indeed, everything evinces signs of tbe most correct
taste. The college and church were opened in 1850 and 1851 res-
pectively, and were founded and endowed by the Hon. George
Frederick Boyle. The college is devoted to the education of
students, and tbe church has now become tho Cathedral of the Isles
of Argyle and Bute. The other places of worship aro a church of
the Establishment, a plain edifice, with a handsome quadrangular
tower ; an Episcopal church, a Free church, United Presbyterian
church, and a Baptist chapel. The schools, three in number, are
well attended. Tbe inhabitants of these isles are a class remark-
able for their industrious habits — chiefly fishermen and owners of
their own boats. Some parts of the greater Cumbray are well
cultivated, producing good wheat, and here and there may he seen
so*me thriving plantations. On tbe western side of the lesser
Cumbray is a lighthouse. This isle is the property of the Earl of
