Journey to Tiree 2

This photo shows a Twin Otter landing on the Reef, Tiree's airfield. For a fascinating description of the airfield's (and some of Tiree's) history, there is a wonderful book recently published by the Islands Book trust called Tiree - War among the Barley and Brine.

On my visit to Tiree I stayed at the Tiree Lodge Hotel, which you can see to the left in the next photo. The hotel is located in a magnificent spot. In front of it lies Gott Bay and the two mile long strand of Traigh Mhor, and behind it are the ruined churches of Kirkipol.

Tomorrow we'll cross over to the north coast of Tiree to see the broch of Dun Mor Vaul and the Ringing Stone.
