Tiree: A Hebridean Jewel

Once again we wake up to a sun filled day with hardly a breath of wind.- not ideal for those here for  the surfing, but ideal for photographing. So come walk with me and enjoy the Autumn views whether close to hand or more distant horizons.

With our ‘Wide Skies’ and Big Horizons’ you are conscious of neighbours near and far, islands such as Mull, Iona, Coll, Jura, Barra, Rhum, Egg and a multitude more. Although Tiree is for the most part low lying, there are occasions when you or walking or driving that the mountains of Mull or Ardnamurchan (or beyond) can feel part of the island.

With Tiree being the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides, living here you feel somehow at the centre, surrounded on three sides by the Hebrides. Sometimes you can make out other islands distinctly and at other times they blend either together or with the Mainland.
