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.

a well preserved village built to house the workers on Skerryvore Lighthouse, a mix of traditional stone build houses/forges/workshops and stunning lighthousekeepers cottages. Iconic communications tower adds a sense of history to Hynish.
