Walk Gigha

Beautiful views in every direction, beaches, wildlife and history - the Isle of Gigha has all this to offer and more. The island is just seven miles long by one mile across and is perfect to explore on foot. There are 12 designated off-road walks, which are described in detail (with maps) in the “Walk Gigha” booklet available from Gigha Stores and Gigha Hotel.

Many of the walks start and end at the centre of the island, not far from where the ferry comes in, so are ideal for foot passengers visiting for a day. The walks vary in length, from half a mile to three miles, and several can be linked to give a whole day's walking. Some of the highlights include:

• SPOUTING CAVE A natural rocky blowhole at the southern point of Gigha

• EUN EILEAN A favourite place for basking seals.

• BODACH & CAILLEACH Ancient standing stones

• CUDDYPORT BEACH Sheltered and safe. Quern stone quarry nearby

• GALLOCHOILLE Ancient harbour and Pictish dun. Secluded coves

• CNOC NA GOBHAR & THE FISHERMAN'S CAVE Inscriptions from the 1700s
