Welcome to the website for
the community-owned Isle of Gigha, the most southerly and one of
the most beautiful of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long by
a mile and a half wide, Gigha is situated three miles west of the
Kintyre peninsular, approximately three hours drive from the City
of Glasgow. Gigha is breathtaking - sandy beaches, clear green
seas, a host of wildlife. There are also Achamore Gardens to explore.
This website can only be an introduction to Gigha - you have to
visit to appreciate its beauty and tranquillity.
With a beautiful hotel, self-catering cottages and
many B&B options to choose from, Gigha offers the perfect getaway
from it all break. Since the community buyout in 2002 the
island has gone from strength to strength with a growing population
that is sustainably developing its local economy.
Wind turbines that generate income for the local economy,
a housing refurbishment programme that is providing high quality
accomodation for residents, increasing local business activity and
a forward looking Trust with directors elected from the island leading
the way - Gigha really is moving forward.
