This is a regular trip for us and we thought we would try something a bit different this year. We were delighted with the quality of the accommodation, the amazing location and the island in general. Our children spent a lot of time swimming in the sea, and jumping off the pier at high tide. In the evenings we lit...

About the neighbourhood
Hynish is the place that Alan Stevenson chose in 1838 as the base for the building of the Skerryvore lighthouse and later as the shore station for the lighthouse keepers and their families. Alan Stevenson House was originally built as store rooms, and has been restored and given a new purpose by The Hebridean Trust, founded in 1982 to preserve the unique Hebridean way of life.

One of the other listed buildings in Hynish is home to The Story of Skerryvore Lighthouse exhibition. This exhibition records the fascinating account of the hazardous Skerryvore reef, 10 nautical miles to the south west of the Isle of Tiree, and the design and construction of the tallest lighthouse in Scotland by Alan Stevenson, uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson. It features unique examples of industrial archaeology,...
