Back when the Hebridean Trust was formed, the buildings beside the pier at Hynish provided limited shelter from the elements to an occasional passing otter and a few local boats. Though sturdily built over 150 years earlier as part of the Skerryvore lighthouse project, the buildings were well on their way to ruin. It took some vision to see a new future for Hynish but, in partnership with the Highlands and Islands Development Board (now Argyll and the Islands Enterprise), the Hebridean Trust put together the idea, design team and funding to create one of the biggest visitor facilities on Tiree.

Through Hebridean Trust links with The Northern Lighthouse Board, its patron Princess Anne was invited to open the first building, which was to be known as Alan Stevenson House in honour of the great lighthouse engineer. The whole of Tiree turned out for the occasion on a sunny day in May 1991.

We have also enjoyed the company of adult groups ranging from birdwatching tours of Tiree and Coll to windsurfers, divers and even a Samba Percussion Workshop from Brazil. We frequently have visiting contractors whose work is improving the public services and utility provision on the island. Famous visitors to the Hynish complex include HRH The Princess Royal, Aung San Suu Kyi, Paolo Nutini, Griff Rhys Jones, and George Fenton.
