Tiree is the most westerly island of the Inner Hebrides. The island has no woodland and only three hills on an otherwise flat landscape. The only distractions you are likely to hear are the waves lapping on golden sandy beaches and birdcalls.
The island is one of the sunniest places in Britain, and with the moderating influence of the warm Gulf Stream, winter temperatures are generally higher than on the mainland, while summer evenings are warm and balmy.
For stargazers, Tiree is the perfect location due to the island having no street lights and a small population - ideal conditions for viewing the night sky. With its golden beaches, lustrous sea and picturesque scenery enhanced by an abundance of wildlife and flowers, the island is an ideal setting for your civil ceremony. Tiree is renowned for its world-famous surf and enjoys more sunshine than practically anywhere else in the UK, earning the island its nickname the Hawaii of the North. Although the charms of Tiree have remained a well-kept secret, it is easy to access.
