Scarinish (Gaelic Sgairinis) is the main township on the Isle of Tiree. Here you will find the post office, a supermarket, butcher's shop, police station, museum and the Scarinish Hotel offering Tiree accommodation overlooking the old harbour above. This harbour was built in 1771 and until the 1960's the ferry from mainland Scotland operated from here. Now several fishing boats and tourist sea trips use it. The Scarinish Hotel opened in 1801 and the post office in 1803. On an 1882 Ordnance Survey map both are clearly shown, the hotel quaintly marked as 'Temperance Hotel' - a reminder that for many years Tiree was 'dry' ie. no alcohol was sold on the island.

An Iodhlann (Gaelic for stackyard) is the community archive and museum for Tiree, this was originally built as a ferry passenger shelter. Here they have collected 1000s of relevant historical items and is a 'must visit' for any island tourist.
