Tenant farmer required on Gigha

Looking for a new challenge?

The Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust is seeking a tenant farmer for a 752-acre livestock farm with a four-bedroom farmhouse on the Hebridean island.

Ardlamy Farm on Gigha has been run as a dairy unit with a herd of blackface sheep.

Gigha—named Gudey by the Vikings, which translates as ‘God’s Isle’—is six miles by one-and-a-half miles and has a population of 156.  Gigha is a community-owned island and the most southerly of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long in total, just over one mile wide, and situated just three miles west of the Kintyre peninsular, it’s still quite close to the Scottish mainland, although when you’re on island it feels like you’re miles from civilisation.

With white sand beaches, clear seas and an incredible population of wildlife, from wild birds to whales and fish, Gigha is an untouched paradise.
