Ardminish (Scottish Gaelic: Aird Mhèanais) is the sole village on Gigha in the Inner Hebrides, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland, and considered its "capital". It is connected to the mainland through a regular ferry service that runs to Tayinloan.

The name Ardminish means "The headland of the narrow point", from a mixture of Gaelic and Norse.[1]
