Machair Cottage, Heanish on Tiree

Tiree is the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides and enjoys the reputation for being one of the sunniest places in Britain which makes it the perfect place for a Scottish holiday.

The ideal headland location of the cottage, close to Scarinish150 yards to white sandy beach…!

The cottage is located on a small headland, next to an old ruined cottage which dates back into the 1800s and with only a handful of other residential properties around, the nearest one being over 100 yards away, it has a truly “get away from it all” type feeling.

And yet, it is just 10 minutes walk (5 minutes on a bike and if you want to drive it’s less than 2 minutes!) to Scarinish which has the main supermarket on the island as well as the Scarinish hotel with its bar and restaurant – all in all, a stunning island location with handy convenience all in one perfect cottage holiday package.

The renovation of the cottage was completed in June 2012 plus we had a brand new kitchen installed in 2014. It has 2 bedrooms, both with wonderful sea views front and back, a lounge and separate dining room, again both rooms have dual aspect sea views, plus the kitchen which has far reaching sea views right across Hynish Bay.
