Discover Tiree was established in 2003 with the aim of providing information for anyone planning to visit the island. We are an independent association of businesses and individuals engaged in tourism and we have over 130 subscribers.
This website receives over 100,000 hits each year. In addition, we have developed an island mobile app which can be dowloaded free. We work closely with Tiree Community Development Trust and the Tiree Ranger Service to provide information and advice for visitors. We produce a range of helpful and informative colour brochures, books and maps which are available from The Ranger, the Tiree Community Development Trust office and lots of locations around the island.
As part of its exolution Discover Tiree changed it's structure on 2 September 2019. It is no longer a not for profit Company Limited by Guarantee. At an Extraordinary General Meeting of members held on 2 September it was unanimously agreed “to wind up Discover Tiree Limited as a Company Limited by Guarantee and to transfer all current assets – financial, physical and intellectual – to Tiree Community Development Trust with immediate effect.”
This decision has not been taken lightly. After a great deal of research and discussion with legal advisors and Tiree Community Development Trust (Tiree Trust) the current Directors recommended that Discover Tiree be wound up with all the assets – financial, physical and intellectual – being transferred to Tiree Trust. Now the proposal has been unanimously agreed, Discover Tiree will be managed as an ongoing project within the structure of the Trust. This will ensure that Discover Tiree has a long term and sustainable future with accounting facilities and administrative support being provided by Tiree Trust staff.
Although the structure of Discover Tiree will now change – the service it offers to its subscribers will be unchanged and everything will continue as it has for the last sixteen years. The aim of the organization will be to continue to offer an outstanding service to all of its accommodation and business subscribers and to improve how it provides information to enquirers and visitors.
Anyone who has a visitor related business - retail or accommodation - on the island can become a subscriber of Discover Tiree. Subscriptions are paid annually, in January, although it is possible to join during the course of the year. Subscribers are entitled to a listing on this website and on the app. If you would like to join Discover Tiree please contact Louise Reid at Tiree Community Development Trust by telephone 01879 220074 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
