5. This is the small gap between the two main islands in the bay. Smaller boats may be able to pass, but deep keel yachts should avoid this route.
The purpose of a visit to Millport though it to pick up an ice cream or to stop for fish and chips. The fish and chip shop, just at the shore end of the pier makes excellent fish suppers. The moorings offer a sheltered stopping point in most conditions with a relatively easy run into the pier, so the cardboard boxes can be balanced in the dinghy..
Tie up the dinghy alongside the pier, get your fish and chips and motor back! On a recent trip we went to the Kelburne Bar, which is across the road from the pier. A good pint in relatively friendly surroundings. It tends to fill up with locals later on, which is usually a good sign.
