The Hynish Centre is the name for a collection of Category A listed buildings on the south-west tip of the Isle of Tiree. Built by Alan Stevenson, uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson, to house and service the iconic Skerryvore lighthouse, they have been restored by The Hebridean Trust to provide holiday accommodation for groups and families with a taste for adventure.
Our young people (and us!) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alan Stevenson House, Fiona & Christel were extremely welcoming and friendly, the accommodation was very comfortable for our needs and we had everything we needed to provide a respite break for a group of young carers aged 12-16 years. Our young people are asking to come back next year - they had a great time! Thank you so much to everyone at The Hebridean Trust :-)
The Cottage was a great base for our holiday. We appreciated having plenty to do on the doorstep with our kids really enjoying playing in and around the harbour.
We enjoyed walks along the coast and opportunities to spot seals and an otter. The walk to the Farmhouse Cafe in Balemartine was a good one.
The cottage was comfy with the only real drawback not having a dishwasher. The wi-fi was good!
