Carnan Mòr and Hynish

This rougher, moorland walk ascends to the highest point on Tiree - beside the 'golf ball' radar station on Carnan Mòr , the summit of Ben Hynish, before a return closer to the coastline. The route starts and ends from Hynish - a fascinating complex of buildings which acted as the signal station for Skerryvore Lighthouse and which now includes an exhibition.


Largely pathless walking; wet heathery hillside and rough pastures above the coastline, with some tarmac stretches.

Public Transport

Tiree has a Ring-n-Ride bus service operating on request; it can be booked between 1 week and 1 hour in advance of your journey, when available.


Parking area behind the Skerryvore exhibition, Hynish. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
