Robertson Museum & Aquarium

Great Cumbrae | Millport | Museum & aquarium | ★★

[Robertson Museum and Aquarium]

The Robertson Museum and Aquarium is a museum and aquarium (just in case you hadn't guessed) perched on the coast road east out of Millport, Great Cumbrae. It isn't the sort of plaice, err, place, you should travel miles to see - the admission fee gives a clue - but the single-room museum gives an interesting account of the sea and bird life around the Firth of Clyde, with a few child-friendly activities dotted around the walls. If you're coming for the sole purpose of seeing the fish, give the centre a call before you travel, as stocking the aquarium relies on local fishing boat trips. There hadn't been any at all in the months before our visit, and we reckon a couple of crabs and starfish might be parr for the course.
