Tiree is the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides and is sometimes referred to as the ‘Hawaii of the North’. Tiree Airport operates flights to and from Oban and Glasgow and the island of Coll, providing a vital connection for residents and businesses.
Tiree regularly records the highest annual levels of sunshine in the UK. The island’s coastal waters coupled with strong winds are also famed as a top location for wind surfing events.
More Tourist Information
Tranquillity, freedom of space and clean pure air abound on the Isle of Tiree. The island is just 10 miles long and five miles wide. With no woodland and only three sizeable hills on an otherwise flat landscape, there is little to interrupt the views. Watch the waves lapping on the vast expanses of white sand beaches and listen to a cacophony of bird calls.
The moderating influence of the warm Gulf Stream means that the winter temperatures are generally higher than on the mainland, and summer evenings are warm and balmy. Tiree is known as a windy place which isn’t all bad as it keeps the midges at bay! Find out more at Isle of Tiree.
