Achamore Gardens - Tour to the Island of Gigha

Beautiful gardens at Achamore on Gigha

About this tour

The community owned island of Gigha is home to the world famous Achamore Gardens. The garden extends to approximately 54 acres of natural woodlands and contains a large walled garden, pond area and many rare and interesting plants and trees growing in the frost-free climate, as well as rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.

Gigha lies just over 3 miles from the Mull of Kintyre. It is reached in 20 minutes from the slip at Tayinloan located a short coach ride from the bustling village of Tarbert - known for its fishing community and busy yachting marina.

In March 2002 the island population (currently numbering 110) managed, with help from grants and loans from the National Lottery and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, to purchase the island for £4 million - one of the first community buyouts in Scotland.

A day trip to Gigha is easily possible for coach and tour operators that are based in Oban, Inveraray and Tarbert. Spectacular coastal scenery all the way down the Kintyre peninsula cannot fail to impress your customers.
