The rocks on the right show how the sea has eroded out softer crystals with the rock leaving a 'honey comb' of harder material.

Tiree, the sunshine isle, is located off the Scottish west coast and is distinctively different amongst the islands of Scotland. Unspoilt beaches, opportunities for watersports, traditional farming and the gentle pace of life encourage visitors to return again and again. For more, take a look at the Tiree Map page.
