An explorer's guide to the islands of Britain

There’s plenty of choice to suit your needs and pockets, here’s a few of our favourites:

HostelThe Millhouse Hostel is an excellent option. Managed by Kris (from Tiree Sea Tours) and his wife Aisling. It’s peacefully located near Loch Bhasapol and just a short walk to Cornaig Beach. There are plenty of accommodation options here (dorms, single rooms etc) and the mill wheel has been faithfully restored!

Campervans & motorhomesCroft camping is as good as it gets and feels like wild camping only it protects the pristine environment of the island. Parking on the fragile machair is NOT and option here. Essentially, croft owners allow you to park on their land, so you have the best of all worlds. There are several stunning locations dotted around the island to choose from but they must be booked in advance. For a more traditional camping site there is also Balinoe (below)

CampsiteBalinoe offers very basic facilities for camping; motorhome pitches; pods; and bothy.

Other properties of note:

Alan Stevenson House – the Hebridean Trust’s stone built bunkhouse enjoys a peaceful location at the head of Hynish pier and sleeps up to 20 people; B&B is also available.

Rockvale Guesthouse – 5*, great location close to the fabulous Balephetrish Bay. The croft has been in the same family since WW1, you’ll find endless comfort and delicious food here.
