Scarinish Hotel from the Old Harbour, Isle of Tiree. This is one of the two island hotels which offer Tiree accommodation. No an old 1882 Ordnance Survey map the hotel is called 'Temperance Hotel'. This reminds us that for many years Tiree was a 'dry island' - no alcohol could be purchased on the island. This situation was encouraged by the Duke of Argyll in the belief that the absence of alcohol would ensure the population were more conscientious workers.
