Beauty and tranquillity
Crystal Clear Waters
Scotland has many islands and lochs and Gigha is the most southerly of the Hebridean islands.
With an eclectic, romantic history, Gigha has certainly seen its share of heroes and passion. The name is derived from the Norse ‘gudey’, meaning Good Island or God Island.
Whilst the island is remote in nature it is very accessible with a regular Caledonian Macbrayne ferry. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, it is a breathtaking place with sandy beaches, clear green seas and a host of wildlife -Gigha is known for its beauty and tranquillity.
In 2002 the tiny island’s remarkable community purchased the deeds to the land in order to become a self – sustaining society.
Today the island’s people continue to embrace the values of sustainability, self sufficiency and community.
We are grateful for the support we have received to date from the local community on Gigha, the local enterprise company and our investors.
Fresh air, cosy comfortable accommodation, some Gigha Halibut with lemon and chive butter, an island malt whisky all combine to slow the pace of life down and create what the islanders call GMT – Gigha Mean Time.
