Facilities available at Garrison House

Fully restored to its former glory in 2008, Garrison House now boasts the local NHS Medical Centre, a state of the art Library, the Museum of the Cumbraes, the Courtyard Café, North Ayrshire local council services office and rooms available for community use.

Serving home baking and light refreshments, the Courtyard Café is now proving a very popular addition to the Garrison. With its light & airy café area opening out to the courtyard on one side and the Museum on the other, it is also proving to be an attractive venue for weddings and other events.

Garrison House Café

Located in the centre of the building and operated by Kenny and Lynn Bogan, the Garrison House Café and courtyard provides an ideal place to relax and unwind with a simple cup of tea or something more substantial. Offering an excellent range of home baking, soups, sandwiches, light refreshments and a very warm welcome every day.

Library & Council Offices

Museum of the Cumbraes

Housed within Garrison House, the Museum of The Cumbraes provides a facinating glimpse into Cumbrae’s past. From 4,000 year-old stone cists, through stories of smuggling in the 18th century to life during WWII and indeed life on the island today.
