Easy access from Glenforsa. We took the coward's way around the North of Mull on the way out, and took a look at Staffa and Fingal's Cave on the way back.

Good choice of runways.

No fuel. Oban is probably the nearest.

There's no trees on Tiree, so the aircraft will get lightly covered in sand - if you have baffles or a cover, use them.

There's plenty of shelter around the apron if you ask nicely. Also plenty of tie downs and burly firemen to move them - they run the tower.

The airfield is a very long, if flat, walk from the habitation. Bicycles or taxis are better. There's a visitor centre about a 1/2mile down the access road and the terminal is open when there's scheduled flights if you're desperate for food before going for a stroll.

Its a bigger island than it looks - there's several small villages but they are a long way from each other. Enormous beaches, tho' we didn't see many swimmers in May.

Its friendly, but not gushingly so - the islanders are proud of their independence, and trying hard to make it better on a limited budget. We stayed at the Scaranish Hotel, which is not spectacularly posh, but they were lovely people - a group of local women bringing it back to life - and the food was good. There are a couple of boutique establishments as well.

Lovely and quiet, although it does get busier in the Glasgow holiday season.
