Although it is not 'part of Kintyre' Gigha is so close that it is worth mentioning and including.
The Isle Of Gigha, was purchased by a Trust consisting of its inhabitants (around 150 people) some years ago and is known as 'God's Island'.
Gigha is well known for the hotel , The Gigha Hotel, and Achamore gardens. The island is also reputed to have some superb beaches and coast line.. a photographic journey beckons!
Gigha is connected to mainland Kintyre by Caledonian MacBrayne ferry from Arminish to Tayinloan and takes about 20 minutes to cross.
As you will notice on mainland Kintyre, and is evident from standing on Kintyre that the southern most point of Gigha has a windfarm, one of a number in the Kintyre area.
