For those with a thirst for adventure, Tiree is a dream as the island is unprotected from the Atlantic Ocean leaving it perfect for kitesurfing and riding a wave or two. The winters are cold and the summers average at 17ºC so this may not be a suitable option for those seeking to enjoy the sweltering heat, but it does have remarkable sunshine throughout the year and with a few excellent restaurants and pubs many a day and night can be spent enjoying the simple life. With numerous villages and many long beaches it is a romantic place to visit, giving a picturesque sample of Scottish life that has not changed great in decades.
Crossapol and Scarinish are the two main villages for visitors to stay in due to the wealth of accommodation choices and the ease of access to the beaches. If you are not so interested by the water-based activities then there is pony-trekking and horseback riding available through the centre of the beautiful central plateau of the island. As the island is so flat it is also popular with golfers and has a fine nine-hole course located in Kirkapol.
