The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
In 1910 Millport became a tourist destination with thousands of families taking the trip from Glasgow, Greenock and other Clyde towns, filling large trunks with all their summer clothes, many would stay in Millport for the summer but the fathers would work durung the week and then make the journey boat to join their families at the weekend. At this time there were various pleasure steamers linking all the Clyde coastal towns. Today, the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world "The Waverly" visits many of the coastal towns during the summer months and can be boarded from Millport and Largs making the journey up The Kyles of Bute.
