WHY NOT ISLAND HOP FROM ISLE OF ARRAN......... Welcome to the community-owned Isle of Gigha, Scotlands best kept secret. The most southerly and one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, Gigha are situated three miles west of the Kintyre peninsula, less than three hours' drive from the City of Glasgow. Gigha is breathtaking – silver beaches and beautiful bays, clear green seas, stunning views and amazing sunsets, lochs and gently sloping hillsides, as well as a plentiful variety of wildlife and birdlife. You can enjoy exploring the many archaeological and historic sites or welcome the peace and beauty of a walk, cycle, kayak safari, fishing and golf. Whatever the time of year you can immerse yourself in the colours of Achamore Garden... WHY NOT ISLAND HOP FROM ISLE OF ARRAN......... Welcome to the community-owned Isle of Gigha, Scotlands best kept secret. The most southerly and one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, Gigha are situated three miles west of the Kintyre peninsula, less than three hours' drive from the City of Glasgow. Gigha is breathtaking – silver beaches and beautiful bays, clear green seas, stunning views and amazing sunsets, lochs and gently sloping hillsides, as well as a plentiful variety of wildlife and birdlife. You can enjoy exploring the many archaeological and historic sites or welcome the peace and beauty of a walk, cycle, kayak safari, fishing and golf. Whatever the time of year you can immerse yourself in the colours of Achamore Gardens that benefit from Gigha being low lying and influenced by the North Atlantic Drift resulting in the climate being drier and warmer than that normally associated with the west coast of Scotland. Beach View Cottage is a 'Beachy' 'chic' cottage. This is a bright, open plan cottage beside secluded beaches, and also within walking distance from all local amenities. Enjoy watching the yachts sail by from the lounge . If you are lucky you may see local wildlife such as whales, seals and birds of prey. The secure garden is a sun trap, but beware a cow might pop over to say 'moo'. The cottage is next to the best beach on Gigha. You can leave the car as it is within walking distance to everything. Bikes are also good for exploring. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to good food and drink on Gigha. From freshly caught seafood, island farmed halibut and oysters to whole milk ice cream from the Gigha cows. Whether you want to pop in for a coffee, shop for provisions for your next sailing, or relax over an evening meal, Gigha has it!
