The property

Lovely semi-detached cottage just a few minutes’ walk from the ferry terminal and main centre of the beautiful island of Gigha off Scotland’s stunning west coast.

This delightful cottage is ideal for couples, families or friends who truly wish to get away from it all and unwind in the tranquillity of small island life.

The main living accommodation is open plan with a fitted kitchen and dining area looking over the rear garden to the coast beyond and a sitting area with a welcoming open fire.

In fact with sunset views of the sea where the boats and ferry pass visible from the kitchen and lounge windows, doing the dishes here is a pleasure.

There are three comfortable double bedrooms, one with an optional pull-out bed, including a ground floor double which is ideal for the less mobile.

The bathroom with bath and shower over, is on the ground floor.

Outside this lovely cottage there is a private garden with patio, furniture and barbeque where you will be able to relax with a refreshing drink, whilst enjoying the tranquillity of the countryside.

A short walk brings you to a lovely secluded beach and is the ideal place to swim or have a picnic and being close to the Gulf stream it benefits from its own microclimate with warm water in the shallow bays.

There is a hotel with WiFi, and a shop which seems to stock everything.

Enjoy beach front dining at the Boathouse café and bar which is well-known and has been locally awarded for its local seafood meals.

There is an abundance of wildlife to see with seals, whales, dolphins and sea eagles often spotted in the area.

Children will enjoy the pond dipping for crabs and fish too.

With its low island traffic, why not walk or cycle the seven miles length of the island enjoying stunning views of the mainland, Ireland and surrounding islands, or visit the stunning Achamore Gardens.

Hire a kayak and tour the island from the sea or have award-winning Gigha halibut prepared and delivered to your door, or perhaps indulge in a bit of sea fishing.

A lovely holiday cottage on a stunning island with so much to tempt you, whatever the season.

About the location

ISLE OF GIGHA

Tarbert 22miles, Campbeltown 22 miles

The island of Gigha is the southern most of the Hebrides and sits off the coast of Argyll in beautifully clear waters. Only 2.5 hours from Glasgow and then a 20 minute ferry journey from the mainland, Gigha is one of the more accessible islands and yet offers a true ‘get away from it all’ experience and a haven of tranquillity. Gigha is community owned, following a buyout in 2002. The island boasts beautiful bays and beaches, crystal clear waters as well as spectacular Achamore Gardens, a nine-hole golf course. Indulge in locally caught fish or make island hopping a part of your trip and visit Scotland’s whisky producing islands including nearby Islay and Jura.
