The Isle of Tiree lies approximately 25 miles West of mainland Scotland, off the Ardnamurchan peninsula, itself the Westmost point of the British mainland. Tiree is accessed by way of the regular Calmac ferry crossings from Oban, via the Island of Coll. Alternatively, the island’s airport is well served by regular connections to and from Glasgow airport. Millhouse Hostel lies towards the North coast of the island, close to Cornaigmore, and lies just West of the B8068 road route which links this area to Scarinish, on the East coast, the point where the ferry docks. Scarinish is approximately five miles from the subjects by road, the local airport approximately two and a half miles due South, making the accommodation readily accessible. Tiree has attractive unspoilt sandy beaches, and is the most Westerly island of the Inner Hebrides. The island is approximately 10 miles by three miles, is relatively flat, and the climate locally benefits from the nearby Gulf Stream, with above average hours of sunshine, lower rainfall and infrequent frosts reported.
