In terms of wildlife, the Isle of Tiree is probably most renowned for its wild bird populations. Dozens, if not hundreds of bird species can be seen. Tiree has the largest Corncrake population in the British Isles. Large numbers of geese fly south from the Arctic to spend the winter on Tiree.

There are no rabbits or deer on Tiree but there are plenty of hares which are most apparent in winter and spring before longer grass grows. Off-shore a good selection of Scotland's marine wildlife - seals, otters, whales, dolphins and basking sharks - can all be seen. Seals aren't difficult to find while otters are far more elusive.
