There are two ways to get to Tiree using public transport links. The first is via Oban using the ferry service provided by Caledonian Macbrayne. If you wish to bring a car this is the way to come. The four hour sailing is relaxing and offers lovely views of Mull, The Small Isles, Coll and Tiree. The alternative is to fly from Glasgow Airport. The flight is operated by Loganair, takes about forty minutes and can, cloud permitting, offer amazing views of the west coast of Scotland.
At this time, we would ask you, PLEASE do not to travel to Tiree if you suspect that you may have contracted Coronavirus.
TRAVEL ON TIREE:
The cottage is located in Heanish, a small township on the south coast, near the middle of the island (see map here).
If you are coming to the island by ferry, follow the road from the ferry terminal until you come to a ‘T’ junction. Turn left and then follow the main road through Scarinish, passing the Co-op. Continue on for a further three quarters of a mile where you will see the cottage on your left hand side, just off the road. The approach to the cottage can be seen in the side bar top picture.
If you are coming to the island by plane, follow the road from the Airport until you come to a ‘T’ junction. Turn left and then follow the main road to a second ‘T’ junction. Turn left and then follow the main road through Crossapol, passing the local community shop. Continue on for a further two miles when you will see the cottage on your right hand side, just off the road. The approach to the cottage can be seen in the side bar middle picture.
The entrance has a cattle grid and open gateway, to the right of which you will see the cottage name plate mounted on a large piece of slate set in the ground - see bottom side bar picture.
