The remote and lovely island of Tiree is the most Westerly of the inner Hebrides, lying next to its neighbour Coll, and famed for its expanse of beautiful sandy beaches.
Exposed to the winds of the North Atlantic, it attracts a large number of surfers who come for arguably the best waves in Britain, and hosts the Tiree Wave Classic windsurfing event in October. The island makes a perfect base for all kinds of watersports and outdoor activities in wonderfully scenic surroundings.
While the main attraction is undoubtedly its setting, Tiree provides a welcoming atmosphere and there are many other things to see and do. The Sandaig Island Life Museum has a terrace of restored thatched crofters cottages giving an insight into life in this remote place in the 19th century. In Hynish, visit the Skerryvore Lighthouse Museum which tells the story of this amazing and elegant structure, still the tallest lighthouse in the UK.
Walk the many bays on this island.
