Tiree is one of the UK's best watersports destinations with mild weather and an abundance of wind and waves. Wild Diamond is a local business offering lessons for beginners and experts alike across a variety of wind and wave sports. All instructors are fully qualified. The windsurfing school is based on Loch Bhasapol, a shallow fresh water loch while lessons for the more advanced can be arranged at any one of the superb beaches dotted around the island's rugged coast line. It is also possible to buy or hire equipment from the Wild Diamond Shop, based in the township of Cornaig.
Tiree is a popular destination for birdwatchers. The rich machair, wet moorlands and lochs provide perfect habitats for all types of waterfowl, waders and the evasive corncrake. The RSPB has a warden on Tiree who can provide up to date sightings and information for bird watchers.
The Ringing stone or Clach a’Choire is a 30 minute walk along the shoreline from Rockvale. Believed to be an erratic boulder deposited by a glacier during the Ice Age the ringing stone produces a metallic clang when hit by another stone. It stands propped up by smaller stones and has many mysterious cup-shaped hollows in it.
Throughout the year there are dances in An Talla, Tiree’s community hall. These are well attended by both locals and visitors alike. Tiree is lucky to have a selection of excellent local musicians and bands. Skipinnish, Skerryvore and Trail West are all established ceilidh bands from the island. While Dun Mor are an up and coming young band who play regularly.
Open seven days a week (7am - 10pm), the Co-op is Tiree’s largest shop selling a wide range of food, drink and newspapers.
