To The North And South Of Gigha By Bike

Back in October I went down to Kintyre to stay with Morag and meet up with my Mum and her friend Helen who were visiting the area with their camper vans. Over the weekend we all went for a couple of bike rides; the first one on the Saturday was a trip over to Gigha. I had my GoPro with me attached to my rucksack to take some footage and then take photos from the short videos.

Seems like a world away at the moment but what is happening at the moment with COVID 19 and lockdown will pass. Being able to go on trips and adventures like this will become reality again but seem all the better for knowing what life is like without them.

We started the day by getting the ferry from Tayinloan.

From the ferry terminal we cycled up to the village and turned right to head to the north end of the island.

Part of the way up to the north end we were joined by one of the farm dogs, Maia wasn’t with us today so I enjoyed being able to cycle with a dog for part of the cycle. There was  a theme of dogs on this trip as you will see.

We then reached the north end where there was a guy with a young puppy, got a good lot of cuddles and nibbles from him ( the puppy not the guy!)

Not far from the north end we stopped for a wee cup of tea, Morag and I got to show off our Jet Boils to my Mum and Helen. We then head back the way we had come.

After walking to the end of the pier and soaking up the amazing views, I took some photos with my phone,  we headed back up to the village to the hotel for some well deserved lunch and a wee look at the craft shops.

It was then back to the ferry terminal again to head back across.

A great day out and the weather god was smiling down on us to show off the island and area to its best. Couldn’t have asked for more.
