Surfing and beaches

Tiree and Coll are both known for their beaches, which fringe the islands and provide miles of fine white sands and great surfing and windsurfing. Tiree – sometime called the ‘Hawaii of the north’ – is a mecca for surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers. 

The island has a vibrant surf scene and is home to some excellent surfing schools. Neighbouring Coll doesn’t have the same surf scene as Tiree, but it does offer some fantastic surfing for those seeking adventure and empty beaches.
