GETTING TO GIGHA
The Gigha ferry departs from Tayinloan on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula. The journey takes 20 minutes. No advance booking is necessary on these sailings. Simply turn up at the port of departure and go on the next available sailing.
Tayinloan is roughly 120 miles from Glasgow. You can drive round on the mainland, or you can see more of the islands by hopping across to Bute or Arran and getting the ferries towards Kintyre from there.
In the summer, you can get a ferry from Ardrossan to Campbeltown, and drive north.
The drive from Glasgow to Tayinloan takes roughly 2 hours 50 minutes.
