TV entertainer and actor John Barrowman, and his sister, Carole, were presented with pictures of Millport to celebrate the launch of their new fantasy children's book "Hollow Earth".

The fantasy novel is based in a fictional island which is based on Greater and Little Cumbrae, and includes many familiar place names in Millport and Largs.
