Located on the eastern shore of the Isle of Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde FSC Millport is easily accessible being just a 8 minute ferry crossing from the mainland. 

It is one and a half hours from Glasgow airport or by road or train.  The centre offers fieldwork experiences on this unique island setting for all ages and is ideal for marine field teaching, being sheltered and within easy reach of a variety of marine habitats.

It also offers research facilities for universities and environmental professionals.  FSC Millport opened for field teaching in February 2014 following the closure of the previous Marine Station run by the University of London (UoL).

For every paper copy of a workshop/course booklet requested by a participant for a course held at Millport Field Station, £5.00 is donated by PR~statistics to the upkeep and maintenance of its public aquarium and library to compensate/offset the carbon footprint of printing a paper version.
