The Isle of Cumbrae

The name Cumbrae is possibly derived from the Gaelic word 'Cumbray' meaning 'shelter' or 'refuge'. Other names on Greater and Lesser Cumbrae owe much to the Viking influence - for example 'Fouleport', a Norse settlement once situated west of the present harbour means 'The port of the mighty warriors'.
