This exploration of Gigha's southwestern coastline is a wilder challenge - unmarked, pathless in places and with plenty of rough, tough going underfoot - but the scenery out of this world. As well as stunning coastline 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.
Minor roads, pathless sections which can be very wet; some farm gates may need to be climbed.
Bus to Taylinoan; ferry to Gigha.
Gigha ferry terminal.
