Beach View Cottage

Isle of Gigha, Hebrides, Scotland

A 'beachy' 'chic' cottage on Scotlands' best kept secret Island of Gigha

Welcome to Beach View Cottage, Isle of Gigha, Hebrides, Scotland

A hidden gem, why not island hop from Arran, Jura, Mull, Islay.........

Beach View Cottage is a 'beachy' 'chic' cottage. This is a bright, open plan cottage beside secluded beaches, and also within walking distance from all local amenities. Enjoy watching the yachts sail by from the lounge. Enjoy the cottage's sea views, open fire, close beach and its secure, sun trap garden, but beware a cow might pop over to say 'moo'!

The cottage features an open-plan design with a fully-equipped kitchen and three double bedrooms with exceptional comfortable beds. Bed linen and firewood is provided.

Johnny's Shore beach is a lovely beach next to the property. The water is so tranquil here it literally pulls you in. Thankfully the outdoor rental centre satisfies this with all types of watersport equipment.

The village of Gigha is a 5 minute walk from the cottage and offers a shop, cafe, beer garden, the Gigha hotel and the Boat House cafe bar where guests can enjoy Michelin-recommended seafood dining.
