Land below the waves
Tiree’s Gaelic name, Tir fo Thuinn – Land below the waves, is a good description of this flat, sunny island with a reputation for glorious beaches, and abundant flowers and birds. However, it has also earned the title “Hawaii of the North” from windsurfers who are attracted to the island by the great Atlantic waves that break on the long, curling silver beaches.
With a population of only 800, this low lying island is about 12 miles long by 7 miles wide. Its fertile green fields are surrounded by an almost continuous string of deserted white beaches, home to lots of different sea birds, seals and otters. Viking remains are scattered throughout Tiree, and there are a number of crofting townships dotted around the island, many with restored thatched cottages.
Tiree is only an hours flying from Glasgow.
