Isle of Tiree

Scotland's Island Coast

Known as the ‘sunshine isle’, Tiree is home to some of the best beaches in Scotland. If you seek tranquillity, freedom of space, and clean pure air, the Isle of Tiree has it all. Though only 12 miles long and 3 miles wide, the sky and sea stretch from horizon to horizon.

With no woodland and only three sizeable hills on an otherwise flat landscape, there is nothing to obscure the view. There is something of a fascination for all visitors, young and old.

The beautiful beaches provide miles of potential sandcastles, gently sloping paddling pools, and windsurfing for the more adventurous. 

Gaelic in Scotland

The indigenous language of Argyll contains great richness of expression.  Here we have shared a phrase from local Gaelic poetry about the Isle of Tiree.

Aonghas MacEacharna

’S toigh leam fhéin an t-eilean grianach (I myself love the sunny island)

Càit air ’n ear no ’n iar a th’ aig bàrr air? (Where in east or west is its better?)
