Camping on Tiree

I would advise any would be campers going to Tiree to be wary of the croft camping scheme. For your £10 you get nothing apart from thistles, nearby scrapyards, quarries or loose cattle wandering the site.

Go to Coll instead.

There are plenty of people who camp on Tiree and respect the fact that it is a living island with many working crofts. They also respect the fact that farmers pay rent for their land too and where else can you expect to freeload like this? Sadly, it is rather common to find that campers have left gates open and allowed cattle to roam into dangerous parts of the cliffs and fall over them to their death. They also let dogs roam free, harassing the cattle and causing them to destroy fences in their panic, fences which campers haven't already destroyed by cutting them or climbing over them instead of walking another few yards to a gate or stile. Just remember that respect goes both ways. When people pay a little respect for the accommodation made to them, they will find Tiree a very friendly place in which to enjoy a camping holiday.

What a shame you had such a poor experience.We've camped on lovely Tiree before and plan to do so again next month on a 2 week island-hop.Hadn't heard of this scheme and would be unlikely to use it, given Scotland's excellent support for wild camping as long at the Outdoor Access Code is followed.We usually have no bother if we do some minor walking onto some of the headlands or more 'remote' spots. Below Ceann a' Mhara (Sandaig side) or at the far end of gorgeous Balephuil beach is well out of anyone's way while giving you a stunning location to camp.
