Welcome to ‘Craigard’.

*** NEW COVID-19 INFO*** Following the announcement by the First Minister and a ‘relaxation of certain criteria from Monday 19th July 2021, we would like to reassure all our guests that we will be continuing to keep in place the stringent policies in terms of cleaning, social distancing and foodservice protocols that we currently have in place. These will remain, at the very least, for the remainder of this season.

The house will continue to be cleaned and maintained to a high standard, ready to welcome you. We are ensuring that the property will be sanitised following the gov.uk advice for accommodation providers. Precautions are in place so you, ourselves and the guest house remain safe.

We have also undertaken the “We’re Good To Go” certification scheme and have a Risk Assessment that covers all aspects of our business.

As well as our additional cleaning processes, whilst staying with us we only ask that you follow recommended measures to reduce the spread of infection. More information will be shared with you before arrival, and guidance is left in your room.

We want all our guests to feel comfortable whilst staying with us and their health, wellbeing, and safety is our foremost consideration. We look forward to welcoming you to Craigard, Millport. Many Thanks, Janette & Crawford

 Come and join us at ‘Craigard House Bed & Breakfast’ in the beautiful town of Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae, where a warm welcome is always assured. Our Bed & Breakfast, which has recently been refurbished and redecorated, is extremely comfortable and is fully centrally heated. 
We are only a few metres walk from the seafront promenade, Kames Bay and Newton beaches and, of course, the famous ‘Crocodile Rock’ where one can look out on the glorious panorama of the Firth of Clyde, the Ayrshire coast, and the majestic peaks of Arran. On a clear day, the island of Ailsa Craig is visible on the horizon.
For all of that, in our opinion, nothing surpasses the ease of access, peace, tranquility, beauty, and friendliness of Cumbrae.
All of our rooms come complete with tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi.

Things we love about Millport…

We both love Cumbrae with all the benefits that island life brings. Being keen walkers ourselves it offers the most wonderful walking experiences whether that be a leisurely stroll along the seafront with its views over the Firth of Clyde, or a full 10 mile walk around the island. The more active can enjoy walking to the top of the island over the Inner Circle route or across the many published hill walks.

There is an abundance of flowers, fauna, birds and wildlife to be spotted including the seal colony on the Wee Eileans and visits from both porpoise and basking shark to the coastal waters.

A must do is to hire a bicycle and enjoy a ride around the island’s largely flat circumference or enjoy spending some time taking in the wonderful architecture at the Cathedral of the Isles.

Go on, jump on the ferry, come over to Millport for a few days and sample for yourselves what we, and thousands of others love about Millport.

A wee bit about us…

The Gillans - Craigard Guest House, Millport

“Janette was born on the island so is a true ‘islander’. Crawford was born in Glasgow and only returned to the island at the ripe old age of 6 days old so apparently does not qualify as a true ‘Millportonian’, a fact he is constantly reminded of!

We were raised, educated, and married on the island before heading off to pursue our careers.  We have since returned to our roots  and over the last 7 years have thoroughly enjoyed running Craigard House Bed & Breakfast  where we offer you a  friendly welcome, a personal  homely touch, delightfully furnished, well-appointed, comfortable rooms  which, along with a wonderful breakfast, will leave  you ready to explore everything that  ‘The Jewel in the Clyde’ has to offer its visitors.”
