Museum of the Cumbraes

Housed within Garrison House, the Museum of The Cumbraes provides a fascinating glimpse into Cumbrae's past. From 4,000 year-old stone coffins – or ‘cists’ – found on the Cumbraes, through stories of smuggling in the 18th century to life during the second world war and indeed life on the island today.
