The land below the waves
Affectionately termed ‘Hawaii of the North’ for its superb array of sunny surf spots and white sandy shores, exposed to the North Atlantic swell.
Traveling to Tiree is a special experience, dolphins and porpoises often swim alongside the ferry, so keep your eyes peeled. Visitors flying in enjoy stunning aerial views of the island and the neighbouring Treshnish Isles.
Tiree is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts attracting kayakers, kiters and surfers from all over the world. Due to the huge amount of sunshine it receives the land is very fertile and the landscape is almost completely flat.
It’s the most westerly island of the Inner Hebrides, and much like its neighbours, there’s a deep-rooted sense of human history that goes back 8000 years. Inhabited by Picts, Vikings and everyone in between the island is home to a small bustling community of around 650 people with a strong crofting heritage.
Expect traditional island architecture in the shape of blackhouses and white houses, many retaining their charming thatched roofs, as well as unique ‘spotty houses’ where white mortar contrasts with dark stone.
Tiree is home to some of the UK’s rarest wildlife. Corncrakes can be heard calling on the machair above the hum of the great yellow bumblebee. The fresh scents of wildflowers and the salty sea air are ever-present and warmly welcoming.
The island's beauty has inspired a number of Scotland’s best-known ceilidh bands. The Tiree Music Festival takes place each July and is revered for welcoming some of the most talented folk artists and bands.
