The Cathedral of the Isles is a Scottish Episcopal Church completed in 1849 in Gothic Revival style for George Boyle, 6th Earl of Glasgow.

This Cathedral is claimed to be the smallest in Scotland, with a 123ft spire that can be seen above the trees from Millport Centre.

The Cathedral was used as a Theological College from 1851 to 1885, then from 1919 to 1927 the College Buildings housed Nuns from the Community of St Andrew of Scotland.

Today, the Cathedral serves as the local Church, the College Buildings are used for Tourists as B&B accommodation.

The Gardens are well worth exploring with old Grave Stones and Crosses, also there are some Celtic Crosses at the entrance.
