Millport folks were certainly tested by the lengthy power cut following last Tuesday's storm.
Electricity did not come back on until Thursday evening. The Garrison Cafe was one of the places which managed to provide hot drinks for locals during the blackout.
Islanders used emergency generators, while Millport Fire Brigade also had to provide lighting to allow the Cal Mac ferry to berth at the Cumbrae Slip.
