The Isle of Gigha Ranger Service set up by the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust in 2020 is responsible for promoting and protecting the island's natural, cultural, and historical heritage, and supporting community and visitor engagement. The service, led by our friendly Island Ranger, Casey-Jo, provides a series of family friendly guided walks and events, as well as promote the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
The role was originally put in place to assist in the delivery of the Gateway to Gigha Project funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund and Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund. The project worked to preserve the island’s historical and natural heritage, improve access through a new cycle and walking path network, provide training opportunities for residents, carry out biological recording, and develop low carbon initiatives across the island. The role has expanded to include visitor management, guided walks, habitat management and restoration, beach cleaning, and environmental education through Forest School sessions and working with the local primary school.
Ranger Guided Walks - Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month between April and September.
