Tiree, a watersports and beach lovers paradise

healing nature, Scottish Islands

Tiree is the most westerly island of the Inner Hebrides, only about 12 miles long and 3 miles wide.  The island has a mild climate with some of the highest levels of sunshine recorded anywhere in the British Isles.

I have two precious days on this incredible little island - mainly because the ferries were full coming back so we had to cut the trip down from 5 to 2 days. The reason the ferry was so busy is that it is the Tiree Wave Classic this week. The longest running professional windsurfing event in the world. Wild Diamond Water sports based on the Isle of Tiree has been sanctioned by the British Wavesailing Association to act as the official event hosts for the Tiree Wave Classic since 2015.

Our first day today saw an incredible sunrise which I captured down at Balevullin Bay, some amazing windsurfing at Crossapol beach and later on, I even managed to catch a few waves myself at sunset.
