Gigha God’s Is­land

The Oban Times - - Feature -

Gigha means ‘God’s Is­land’ in Gaelic and vis­i­tors to this mag­i­cal is­land may well agree. With daz­zling beaches, an­cient sites and sweep­ing views, Gigha is a tran­quil emer­ald gem. Add to that the friendly He­bridean hos­pi­tal­ity, and it is an ideal get­away for those look­ing to es­cape the hus­tle and bus­tle of ev­ery­day life. Gigha is an ideal spot for bi­cy­cling and wa­ter sports of all kinds, from sea kayak­ing and pad­dle board­ing to row­boat­ing and snorkelling. The isle was bought by the com­mu­nity in 2002, and now the Isle of Gigha Her­itage Trust man­ages most of the is­land.
