The Isle of Tiree
I think that If I had visited the Isle of Tiree when I was 20 I might never have left. There is something so beautiful about the simplicity of the island that I just adore. The parking for a beach is generally a sign pointing to a piece of grass, the police station is a house overlooking the sea with a chicken run. The population of cows and sheep definitely overtakes people and I have still to find a petrol station.
There are two watersports schools here, Blackhouse Watersports and Wild Diamond. Blackhouse can be found in a small beach hut on Balevullin beach. Wild Diamond has a shop in Cornaig and offers windsurfing, kite-surfing, surfing and SUP instruction. They also run the yearly Tiree Wave Classic which we had the good fortune of seeing whilst we were on the island.
I could only stay 2 days on this occasion as the ferries were very full so next time I will be back for a week and some more in-depth reviews of what the island has to offer...
