The town of Millport is famed through numerous generations of Scots as a popular daytrip and holiday destination. The trip “doon the water” is synonymous with many generations of Scots with the town of Millport and the Isle of Cumbrae being only a short distance off the Ayrshire coast. The island is readily accessible from the Ayrshire town of Largs with Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services running a twice hourly service from early morning to later in the evenings. The Isle of Cumbrae itself is home to approximately 1,300 residents although that number swells in the busy summer season.

The island is small in nature and can be circumnavigated within a comfortable 10-15 minute drive. The main town on the island is Millport which is approximately 4 miles from the ferry slipway. Millport has always been linked with visitors with the town very much geared towards the tourist economy. The island is very flat and attracts cyclists all year round but especially during the peak summer season. Millport is built around its harbour area with a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and takeaways making the town a real hub during the spring, summer and autumn months, it is extremely child friendly with its beaches, play areas and cycle paths.

The premises traded as The Crocodile Chippy up until recently when the new owners decided to concentrate on other business interests. Named after the famous rock that is overlooked from the front of the property it offered the usual range of fried foods along with pizzas and some specials which proved very popular with locals and visitors. The unit is in good order throughout and can continue along the same lines as before or could be adapted to the buyers preference.

Freehold. A guide price of £80,000 is sought for the heritable interest in the property and all fixtures & fittings pertaining thereto.
