Ardminish, Gigha, Argyll & the Isles, West Scotland
Gigha is the southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides, and because it is low lying and influenced by the North Atlantic Drift the climate is drier and warmer than that normally associated with the west coast of Scotland.
The island boasts beautiful bays, stunning views and breathtaking sunsets, lochs and gently sloping hillsides as well as a plentiful variety of wild and birdlife. The climate directly influences the world famous Achamore Gardens – over 50 acres of rare and unusual plants surrounded by picturesque woodland.
A nine-hole golf course is just a short stroll from the ferry and hotel, and to completely relax you can spend many uninterrupted hours watching seals and otters along the shores.
Expect to pay the Gigha Heritage Trust for the use of visitor moorings.
Facilities include: Visitor Moorings, Anchorage, Mooring Fee Payable, Fresh Water , Fuel by can, Gas, Provisions Store, Rubbish Disposal, Laundrette, Toilets, Showers, Bar, Restaurant, Post Office, Internet Access.
The landscape of Gigha is unspoilt and breathtakingly beautiful with its many bays, small hills, a few lochs and some caves mainly on the south and west coast. The island offers lovely views to Islay, Jura and the mainland of Kintyre. The nine hole golf course is located just outside the main village. A mile south of Ardminish are the wonderful gardens of Achamore and are considered to be one of the most beautiful gardens in this part of Scotland.
