Necker Island

For those seeking total solitude for their final 3 days, we have one place per trip to be marooned entirely on your own secluded beach for the 72hr isolation period. Availability is limited to one person/group so please notify us of your request when making your inquiry. This is priced at £300 GBP, please email us to confirm availability before booking. With steady trade winds, warm turquoise waters, beautiful trails and two tennis courts Necker Island is a perfect playground for any number of sports. The island provides ample opportunities for you to explore the crystal-clear waters or sample the magic of the island from the comfort of your beach hammock. The island can be booked on an exclusive basis but at certain times of the year, individual rooms can be booked – we call these ‘Celebration Weeks’.

If you are a group of friends, family, or business who would like a private expedition then you can customise the trip, selecting the dates, itinerary, and level of challenge that suits you. You can learn more on our private expedition pageor send an inquiry to us at Bleaker Island, half an hour’s flight from Stanley, is a sheep and cattle farm and a wildlife tourist destination. Welcome to the community-owned Isle of Gigha, the most southerly and one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, Gigha is situated three miles west of the Kintyre peninsula, less than three hour drive from the city of Glasgow. Welcome to the Gigha community website where you will find out about the community trust, community groups, projects, events, volunteering and local news.

We’ll use the public bus to reach the trailhead at the traditional mountain village of Lefkes. This is a very popular walk and the path is lined with wild herbs such as thyme, sage and oregano, so it’s a sweet scented experience too. We’ll finish our walk at Prodromos where there will be the chance to stop at a local cafe to enjoy homemade ice cream and baklava. Here in the side streets you’ll usually find the locals playing a game chess or backgammon. From here we’ll take the bus back to Drios or there may be the opportunity to stop in Piso Livadi for lunch or a further walk along the coast.

Here we share an overview and unearth the wildlife that live in the woodland and heathland habitats. Join one of our volunteers for a free guided talk about Brownsea’s past and present. From eccentric island characters to modern-day conservation, it’s a great way to learn more about the island. Walks daily at 11am and 1pm, subject to volunteer availability.
