Tayinloan, United Kingdom

Travel to Tayinloan

Gigha (Gaelic: Giogha) is a small island 3 miles off the west coast of Argyll in Scotland. The name is probably from Norse Guðey, “god’s island” or “good island”. It’s about 6 miles long north-south by 1½ miles wide. The main attraction is Achamore Gardens.

A small roro Calmac ferry plies between Tayinloan on the mainland to Gigha, taking 15 min. This sails daily year-round, hourly; April-Oct it’s 09:00-18:00 and Nov-March until around 16:00. Return fares are £16 for a car and £5.60 per adult including the driver (Dec 2019).
