The Isle of Gigha was named by the Vikings 'Gudey', The Good Isle or God's Isle, and it really is such a special place that once you visit, you will always want to return.
You will experience one of the warmest welcomes in Scotland when you arrive on the island from the 20 minute roll-on roll-off ferry journey from Tayinloan on the mainland. Gigha has always enjoyed a special reputation for the variety of scenery, wild and birdlife; peace and quiet and total relaxation that it offers. This is only surpassed by the friendliness of the Gigha residents.
Gigha is the southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides, and because it is low lying and influenced by the North Atlantic Drift the climate is drier and warmer than that normally associated with the west coast of Scotland. The island can boast beautiful bays, stunning views and breathtaking sunsets, lochs and gently sloping hillsides as well as a plentiful variety of wild and birdlife. The climate directly influences the world famous Achamore Gardens - over 50 acres of rare and unusual plants surrounded by picturesque woodland. A nine-hole golf course is just a short stroll from the ferry and hotel, and to completely relax you can spend many uninterrupted hours watching seals and otters along the shores.
Can you think of a more romantic setting for a wedding, anniversary
or that special occasion than this idyllic island?
We can guarantee you a welcome that you will find hard to beat and a holiday that will be one of your most treasured moments.
