The Isle of Gigha was put on the market in 2001 and the community were encouraged to purchase and own the island. Gigha was handed over to the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust (IGHT) on the 15th March 2002, a day that is marked on the island every year as “Gigha Day”.
The Trust is managed by a Board of voluntary Directors. They are elected by the membership to develop the assets of the island, and take forward plans and projects for the community. There are several subsidiary companies in place to generate income to the Trust that helps to continue to develop the island:
Gigha Trading Ltd - The trading arm of the Trust that manages 5 self-catering holiday cottages, Gigha moorings, pontoon and airstrip.
Gigha Green Power Ltd - Operates an Enercon E33 turbine.
Gigha Renewable Energy Ltd - Operates the three "Dancing Ladies" turbines.
IGHT currently has 4 full-time paid employees and 2 part-time paid employees. This small staff team support the 4 company Board of Directors, and many volunteers undertake a wide variety of jobs and projects for the island. Not only do our visitors support Gigha when they use the hotel, shop, moorings, accommodation and other facilities but it is not unknown for visitors to come to Gigha in a voluntary capacity to help in Achamore Gardens or with other projects!
