Welcome to the Isle of Tiree

PLAN FOR WHEN YOU CAN

The Scottish Government roadmap out of Lockdown sets out a phased route for easing the lockdown restrictions in Scotland.

Phase 1 of the roadmap is due to come in to force on Friday 29th of May. Moving to the subsequent phases of easing lockdown will take place once specific criteria around Covid-19 and our ability to manage it have been met. As a result, there are no firm dates yet in place for moving to phase 2, 3 and 4.

Under phase 1 and phase 2 of the roadmap you cannot travel to Tiree for your holiday or to visit your second home. In her speech announcing the detail of the phase 1 changes The First Minister made this clear, saying 'it is still the case that you should not go to our island communities, except for essential reasons.'

Please spend this time planning what you are going to do when you can safely get here in phase 3 and beyond. Tiree will still be here in all her glory and we look forward to seeing you as soon as it is safe and advisable to visit.

Calmac are currently operating an essential LIFELINE timetable which is to bring supplies and key workers to and from Tiree. Your reason for travel and driving licence will be asked for at the ferry terminal at Oban and you risk bringing this dangerous virus into an elderly and vulnerable community.

Loganair are also operating and essential travel only service. They are currently allowing you to put on hold, for 12 months, any bookings up to the 28th of June and they will keep reviewing this so please check their FAQ on their website.

Finally, please remember, this is the Scottish Roadmap. We are a few weeks behind here compared to England as COVID-19 hit us later. If you are in England, please ensure you are not breaking the Scottish rules.
