The Hebridean Trust was established in 1982 with the aim to support, stimulate and develop the economies of island communities, to restore and maintain buildings of outstanding architectural work, to protect and preserve the natural environment and to inform the general public about the Hebrides, its way of life, its Gaelic culture and its natural heritage.

Since then, about a quarter of a million people have enjoyed a Hebridean experience as we have restored buildings and developed housing, acquired and managed protected areas, provided facilities for disadvantaged young people to have subsidised holidays, created exhibitions and undertaken wildlife and archaeological surveys.

As a charity, the Trust relies entirely on the generosity of its volunteers and the financial support received from a wide range of statutory and private sources.


COVID-19 Update


Accommodation opening 15 August 2020

Good to Go LogoWe’re thrilled to share that we now have the Visit Scotland ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard mark to demonstrate that we’re adhering to the respective government and public health guidance, and have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have the required processes and protocols in place. This keeps our team, Tiree and our lovely visitors (when you return) safe.

We look forward to opening our accommodation from 15 August 2020, but the museum & exhibitions will remain closed for the time being.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Relocation of the Hebridean Trust office to Tiree

The Hebridean Trust administration and registered office has now relocated to its new home in Hynish. Previously it had been led from Oxford: but the trustees have made this move to really engrain the centre within the social and economic structure of the Tiree community and maximise the use as a resource.

This is a really positive, and exciting step as it marks the start of more opportunities – future jobs, and a real hub of the future for local residents and to attract tourism.

Heritage Lottery Fund

Heritage FundWe’ve successful secured Heritage Lottery Funds to enable us to do a number of short-term repairs, maintenance and conservation. We will be looking to source various trades and expertise from the island, if possible, to help us with this project. If you have any capacity between now and the end of October (deadline date for the project completion) we would love to hear from you. We can give you a brief of what needs done and we would ask you for a quotation and timings in line with our procurement policy. Here is a list of what we need:

  • Plastering
  • Plumbing
  • Painting (internal and external)
  • Conservation Building work
  • Electrical work
  • Digital Media/Creating a Virtual Tour
  • COVID Recovery Plan
  • Laying Flooring
  • Chimney Sweep
  • Landscaping

It’s an exciting time, and we look forward to sharing more progress in the coming months.
