Visit the Treshnish Isles natural history exhibition in Hynish for an opportunity to learn about the enchanting Treshnish Isles, visible from the Isle of Tiree.
Part of the Category A listed lighthouse establishment built for the construction and servicing of Skerryvore lighthouse, the Treshnish Isles natural history exhibition is housed in a stone built ground floor property enjoying a wonderful, peaceful location close to the small beach at Hynish.
This exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the enchanting Treshnish Isles, which are visible from the Isle of Tiree and are owned and managed by the Hebridean Trust. Enjoying the Treshnish Isles whilst on Tiree helps to conserve a highly sensitive environment and to protect the seabird colonies, including puffins, razorbills, guillemots and petrels, that rely on the Treshnish Isles as an annual breeding ground. Visitors can experience the natural history of the Treshnish Isles through stunning displays, a scale model of the islands and audio visual material.The property was restored by the Hebridean Trust (www.hebrideantrust.org) and the visitor donations contribute towards the future maintenance.
