Discover Gigha

The idyllic island getaway on your doorstep

You normally 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 trip away, the Isle of Gigha, often referred to as ‘God’s Island.’

After a gentle sail across from the village of Tayinloan, courtesy of 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.

Immediately on your left as you leave the ferry you will find the Gigha Boats Activity Centre, which offers the chance to get out across the clear crystal blue waters in kayaks, paddle boards, pedalos and rowing boats.

The centre is run by Gordon Watson, who moved to Gigha from Stirling to set up the business after falling in love with the island following a holiday. It also rents out bikes, along with tagalongs which are a perfect way to get around the single track, nearly car-free roads. Minigolf is also present offering a fun activity for all the family.
