Gigha is the most southerly Hebridean Island, and one of the most beautiful. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, Gigha is situated three miles west of the Kintyre peninsula, and is a three-hour drive from Glasgow.
There is an unmanned grass landing strip, requiring prior permission for landing. It is one of the closest airstrips to Glasgow International Airport, typically a 20–30 minute flight away for small aircraft. A Caledonian MacBrayne ferry service links the island's only village, Ardminish, to Tayinloan and the A83 on Kintyre.
