Ferry to Gigha and Tayinloan
Gigha Island is just a small island off the coast of the Kintyre Peninsula. The Gigha ferry departs from the town of Tayinloan. To get here from England or Scotland, you have to make a long detour or you can choose the ferry between Ardrossan and Campbeltown in summer. Another possibility is to travel to Kintyre by several ferries. You can easily find that route on the map with all crossings.

- Check-in is 10 minutes prior to departure for vehicles and passengers
