Tiree Windsurfing and Watersports
Tiree is statistically the windiest & sunniest place in the British Isles! As the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides is also picks up a lot of Atlantic swell. A sunny climate and white sand beaches facing every direction make Tiree a water sports paradise. With good wind statistics and shallow bays to open wave beaches there is everything a kitesurfer could want, and when the wind does not blow empty surfing lineups can be found on the west and south coasts.
With nine windsurfable beaches to choose from, the beauty of Tiree is that it can provide bolt flat water and down-the-line sailing at the same time – you just have to pick your beach. For example, in a typical south-westerly blow you would get down-the-line sailing at Balevullin, port cross onshore at The Maze, starboard cross onshore at Crossapol and flat water at Gott Bay.
