Glorious Gigha

A place of timeless harmony, right on your doorstep

You don’t have to travel thousands of miles to find crystal clear ocean waves lapping softly onto pristine white sandy beaches.

Fortunately, the West Coast of Kintyre is an island paradise with all this and more just a 20 minute ferry crossing to the Isle of Gigha, often referred to as ‘God’s Island.’

After a gentle sail across from the village of Tayinloan, with CalMac and their friendly staff, the idyllic and peaceful shores of Gigha awaits you. From the minute you step off the ferry, especially on a warm summer’s day, you might just think you are in a tropical oasis.

Head south around Ardminish Bay to the Boathouse; the Michelin- recommended and multi award-winning restaurant. The quaint building sits in front of a beautiful white sandy bay with outside decking and serves simply delicious fresh local food - a heavenly dining experience.

The Boathouse campsite sits alongside the restaurant which is an idyllic spot to enjoy the peacefulness of the island with all the necessary amenities on site.

Carrying on up the main road on Gigha brings you to Ardminish Stores, the only shop on the island which stocks a variety of hyper-local produce as well as more exotic and eccentric supplies. This is the only place on the island where you can buy smoked Gigha Halibut, a true delicacy, which recently scooped the Golden Fork Award for the Best Scottish Product of the Year.
