Interesting rock but history shared by staff at the Distillary
Aug 2021
Loved the visit to Cumbrae , as we left the Distillery we had to see the Rocks after a helpful member of staff told us the story of the original painting and why their Gin was called after it.

A historic “attraction”.
Aug 2021
There’s no doubt that the Crocodile Rock is the most famous attraction in Millport and I remember my mum telling us as children how she and her brother used to go and see it back in the 1930s when she was a little girl. Even then, the crocodile had been about for quite some time as it was first “discovered” about 1913.

A local man named Robert Brown was apparently heading home from the pub one day after a few pints when he noticed that a group of rocks along the shore seemed to resemble a crocodile. Later on, armed with tins of paint and a couple of brushes he set out creating the image we see today and that is so well known as Crocodile Rock.

I can’t imagine that Mr Brown would ever have imagined that his creation would have lasted over 100 years (and still counting) but I’m sure he would be delighted to know that it has brought fun to many generations of kids.

Everyone likes their photo taken here!
Legend has it that, every Spring, a mermaid comes up from the ocean to give the crocodile it's annual paint job!

Kids love it
Mar 2020 • Family
The rock is fab it’s brightly painted and is great to sit and watch the sea coming in and the crocodile gets engulfed with the water. The kids love it as there is a path to get onto it it’s fab to sit with the kids and get pictures taken. Fab to take pics of my grandson in the crocodile as I had my pictures taken on it.Crocodile rock is a part of Millport no where else has one and it’s always brightly painted.

What can you say. Bout the crocodile rock - it’s been there forever and will always be there. Clearly had a fresh coat of paint this year and at high tide looks really impressive - always a great photo opportunity

A classic for kids of all ages

If you go to Millport, you just have to climb on the crocodile for a ride - it's tradition! One my partner (in his 60s) and I (50s) were delighted to uphold on our most recent visit, so it really is for kids of all ages ;-)
