Old fashioned comfort and good food in a lovely setting. A great base for exploring the island. Staff friendly obliging and efficient. Food was good including local specialities - e.g scallops and halibut from the surrounding waters.

Hello, the walk from the ferry to the hotel is about 10 minutes. If you let us know which boat you will be on we can arrange to collect you. When you come off the boat you will see a wooden shed on the let hand side - this is Gigha Boat Hire - but he also hires out bicycles. Kind regards, Gigha Hotel
