Welcome to the website for Cèabhar Guesthouse and Restaurant, Isle of Tiree. The island is renowned for having the highest statistics for sunshine and wind.
The name Cèabhar is Gaelic for “a fine breeze”, which seems very appropriate for Tiree. Although the alternative meaning of Cèabhar is “a case of slight intoxication” so if you love quiet white sand beaches, turquoise sea crashing on rocky deserted coves. Come and discover the reason for our intoxication with Tiree our new home.
Cèabhar is located in the peaceful village of Sandaig on the far west coast of Tiree. We are a short walk from some of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches in the UK. The shoreline next to Cèabhar is full of interesting rocky coves and outcrops and the area is regularly visited by a diverse range of wildlife.
The open sand dune pasture land around Cèabhar is known as ‘Machair’ a unique Hebridian environment that is protected for it’s ecological value. It is also an important resting spot for migrating birds and a nursery for groups of breeding birds in the spring and full of colourful wild flowers such as yellow rattle, Irish Lady’s Tresses and various Orchids.
Please note that due to our location. We strongly recommend that visitors bring transport so that they can explore the entire island, or be sufficiently fit to explore on foot or cycle. Although Tiree is small, we are in a very remote area and it is a long walk to the other attractions on the island.
We are Duncan and Polly and we have been living on Tiree, running Ceabhar, since Dec 2006. We first visited Tiree as tourists on kite surfing holidays and just fell in love with the island. We found our home after meandering about Tiree on a unusually wind free day in August 2006 and discovered the business up for sale and after a a great deal of research, we thought we would like a change of life and escape the madness of mainland life. We both love the hospitality trade and living on Tiree means that we can also indulge ourselves in our leisure passions both above and below the water.
We look forward to welcoming visitors and helping you to enjoy the island as much as we do.
