Achamore Lodge was built in 1895 and has been home to gamekeepers, gardeners, factors, holiday makers and now myself and my son, the dogs Luna and Archie and the cats Charlie and Craig.
Nestling in trees to the south of the island, the house was the Lodge house for Achamore House and later it’s world famous Achamore Gardens. It is a wonderfully peaceful place. With private gardens to the front with ‘tropical’ trees which host a spectrum of birds, the Lodge is a place which enables rest and relaxation.
Achamore Lodge has spacious and comfortable guest rooms which open onto the gardens. I usually offer bed and breakfast and also run retreat weekends where there will be a focus on singing, music or art. There is limited mobile reception , but we do have clean air, wide skies, bird song and musical instruments aplenty.
When I reopen the B&B page will share how we will all need to work together reduce any risks raised by Covid 19 to guests, my family and islanders during your visit to Gigha.
Keep an eye on the website for opening dates and information. I shall not be accepting bookings through Booking.com or AirBnB initially and will only re-open when Government guidance allows.
Please stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you in the future.
