An exploration of the south west coast of Gigha where the walking is fairly tough - pathless in places and overgrown in summer - but the scenery out of this world. As well as stunning coast it also visits the standing stones of Bodach and Cailleach, the windfarm, the beach at Grob Bay, the spouting cave and south pier, before returning along the road past Achamore Gardens.
Paths and farm tracks, pathless sections which can be very wet, minor road, one farm gate to be climbed.
