As befits its name, which may mean God's island, Gigha is green, fertile, and serenely beautiful. Seven miles long and just a mile and a half wide, the island is the ideal size to explore for the traveller on foot. Leave your car on the mainland to make the most of the opportunity to escape to this peaceful haven.
Gigha has several stunning beaches, prehistoric standing stones, miniature hilltop summits and superb views, whether across to Islay and the mountains of Jura or back towards mainland Kintyre. No visitor to the area should miss the chance of a day on Gigha but the island offers most of all to those who come to stay here and enjoy some Hebridean hospitality.
