Much of interest

We were staying in the cottage adjacent to this but we would have visited earlier. Spent an interesting couple of hours studying the local history.

Excellent Exhibition, Excellent Food.

We visited twice during our stay on the island. The first time was in the campervan, to visit the very informative Skerryvore Lighthouse exhibition, a must if you’re a fan of the Stevenson’s engineering feats.
On that occasion, the pier restaurant wasn’t open at lunch time, so a few days later we cycled over from our Croft campsite and had a lovely lunchtime meal there.

A fantastic meal in the evening here at He the pier cafe restaraunt, beautiful lemon sole! really lovely friendly relaxed atmosphere with lovely staff who absolutely genuinely want to talk to you and make it a lovely stay. A very comfy sleep in the Hynish centre itself, an amazing setting (treated to a stunning display of noctillucent clouds in the early morning too!) All so much appreciated after walking 12 miles in 30° heat on Tiree, couldn't ask for better. Thank you!

Planned visit.

We went to the centre several times during our stay on Tiree. The information centre is brilliant and informative, the walks are very interesting and the beach is a bit of a sun trap and, I was told, a place to see visiting otters. The Peir restaurant is a real gem. The food is local and all of the meals are cooked for you from scratch whilst you wait. The staff are tremendous - very informative and enthusiastic about what they do. Crystal was particularly helpful - a great source of local knowledge - gave us some tips on places to visit which enhanced our visit of Tiree. Great place and great staff - don't miss it.

Excellent Exhibitions but don't miss the Hynish Pier Cafe!
Jul 2018 • Family
One could spend a good half hour in each of the exhibitions on the Skerryvore lighthouse and the Treshnish Isles. But as of summer 2018 don't miss the Café just by the neighbouring pier. Excellent coffee and cakes during the day and great seafood (BYOB and must book in advance) in the evening. Run by very friendly people also.!

Informative & interesting

The account of the Skerryvore Lighthouse, why it was built & how it was built, who built it & the life of a lighthouse keeper there is very interesting and well put together. It's in the end building of Morton Boyd House at Hynish along with public toilets that are very clean.
It's situated at the South East tip of Tiree and has a small beach nearby.

The exhibitions about the building of skerryvore lighthouse and the treshnish islands were amazing and really well organised and planned. Great multi media and information. £3 donation asked and relies on honesty as not manned.... there is a cafe there open mon-fri 12-3pm which we missed

Cycled a tour of Tiree and had read about the Alan Stevenson connection so sought out the museum. Very clearly set out and lots to see externally. the adjacent beach is great for a swim.
