Self Catering Accommodation Tiree
You’re never far away from anywhere on Tiree as the island is only 4 miles by 12 miles.
There are many activities to enjoy including watersports such as windsurfing, surfing, kitesurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking as well as cycling. There are many long sandy beaches for more relaxing past times such as walking and taking in the extensive and sometimes quite rare wildlife including birds, bumble bees, hares, otters, basking sharks and seals. You can stroll through the machair, the grassy areas near the coast teaming with beautiful and again, sometimes rare wild flowers. Just sit at a quiet corner of the coast and wait for the hares to come scampering around you and listen to the buzzing bumble bees hovering in the delicate wild flowers. The seals will bob up and down and be as inquisitive as ever and if you are really lucky you may see an otter in and around the seaweed and the rocks.
As Tiree has no street lights and almost zero light pollution, it is an ideal place to come and gaze at the stars and lose yourself in your dreams.
The cottage which is finished in the traditional style of white painted pointing around the bare stones is fully modernised inside. As well as a cosy heating system it has two multi fuel stoves for those cooler evenings. It also has free internet WiFi . Outside there is a large enclosed and secluded garden and a lockable barn to store any bicycles and water sports equipment and to dry wet suits.
