The most westerly of the islands making up the Inner Hebrides, the Isle of Tiree is a stunning island just ten miles long and five miles wide. Despite its remote northerly location in the UK, Tiree combines wonderful scenery with a warm climate, being one of the sunniest recorded spots in the British Isles. It sits on the Gulf stream which affords long warm summer evenings and virtually frost-free winters. Visitors to the Island are welcome. If you are looking for a peaceful, remote but cosy holiday cottage in a friendly community, Tiree is a lovely unspoilt destination for a Scottish holiday. Tiree itself is mainly flat – no woods and only three considerable bumps in the countryside, leaving nothing to obscure the ocean views. The Island is also a peaceful, sparsely populated place to stay. You’ll feel like you own your own private beach. For a quiet, relaxing holiday up in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, the Isle of Tiree is the place to be. Off the water there are plenty of other sports and events to keep you and the family entertained such as cycling or walking along Tiree’s forty-six mile coastline.
Agriculture and fishing are the main industries upon the island, emphasizing its raw rural atmosphere. Take a fishing day out on Loch Bhasapoll where an abundance of quality brown trout can be found beneath the still waters. Surfing the swells of the Gulf Stream is also a popular activity, contact Suds Surf School to improve your technique or learn from scratch.
Being so small and surrounded by clear Scottish waters teeming with fish, the local cuisine is certainly not to be missed. With many seafood restaurants just outside your front door you’ll feel like you’re fine dining every night of the week. Tiree is a wonderfully, quaint and beautiful location to escape everyday life and live for a week on a tiny secluded island in the sunshine.
