Hynish Heritage Trail and Skerryvore Lighthouse

The lovely harbour and hamlet of Hynish, near Tiree's southern tip, was built in the 19th century to house workers and supplies for the construction of Skerryvore Lighthouse – Scotland’s tallest lighthouse. The Skerryvore Lighthouse Museum, which occupies on of the old workshops, tells the story of the heroic engineers and keepers who built and maintained the lighthouse on a treacherous low-lying reef 10 miles south-west of Tiree.

The Hynish Heritage Trail (maps available from the museum) leads you around the workshops and walled gardens that once served this small community.

The museum is open from May to September.
