The north end of Gigha sees fewer visitors than further south. The gems of this part of the island are the Twin Beaches; the walk visits these as well as the North Cairn and the summit views of Cnoc nan Gobhar. The walk can be made into a short one by cycling or driving to a layby below Cnoc nan Gobhar.


Long road walk to the north end (can be cycled); then three short walks, muddy in places
