Conditions of Hire

As is the norm we would ask tenants to agree to run the cottage in a certain way allowing the same conditions to apply to the next tenant. With the concern mainly on you enjoying your time in the cottage we hope the following will be able to be adhered to without too much difficulty. The cottage is privately run and hopefully you will find comfortable with soft furnishings. So please take care of the property.

Please make sure everyone in your party understands the conditions here and in the info pack in cottage.

A caretaker looks after the cottage and will have been in doing checks between tenants. They will be able to help with problem. Only contact them if you do not get us on Tel: 01631565242 or Mob: 07484735734. Please take these numbers with you in case of any problems on route or on arrival.

There is a charge for Electricity

We insist on no smoking in the cottage.

We do not allow pets.

Please bring your own linen. That is duvet covers, sheets, pillowcases, dish towels, bath towels, floor bath mat, nonslip bath mat and hand towels, we provide duvets and pillows. Or organise it with the local supplier Fiona Malcolm Tel: 0733323587 – Email: or Kate at Pier Laundrette. Text 07747013639 01879220440 or

To help with Covid protection we provide clean bed protectors and shower curtain in a laundry bag in the porch please fit these on arrival. Please remove the used covers and shower curtain on departure and put them in a black bag into the laundry bag.

We will leave wipes and hand sanitiser for use where appropriate.

All hard and soft surfaces and contact areas will be treated when you leave.

Before going please search “corona virus Scotland” and “Tiree trust Covid site ” for up to date information.

The sewage is by septic tank. This means only toilet paper down the toilet and no cleaners containing bleach are to be used. Also no grease or solid matter can be put down the drains.

Most importantly we ask if you would leave the cottage clean and tidy as the previous tenants should have left it. We ask you the tenant to clean the cottage. Particular attention should be paid to toilet, sinks, all kitchen surfaces, bath/shower area. We provide materials for cleaning. With additional items found in the kitchen sink unit. If you are bringing your own please do not use material containing bleach, as we have a septic tank Please clean the fridge & freezer and leave on for the next visitors.

This allows us to offer an immediate entry time as often as we can. Your departure time is 1 hr and 15m before sailing. I will advise of any changes to these times where possible. So please supply me with your mobile numbers.

There are 2 sailings on a Saturday in peak season June, July, and August. IMPORTANT. TO AVOID TWO FAMILIES BEING AT THE COTTAGE AT THE SAME TIME PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR SAILINGS. THE SUGGESTED SAILINGS ARE LEAVING TIREE ON THE EARLY FERRY AND ARRIVING ON TIREE ON THE LATER FERRY. I will try and coordinate with you so that you know there will not be a problem when you arrive. It might just mean an agreeable adjustment of times between outgoing and incoming tenants.

I have found over the past few years most tenants leave Tiree on the early ferry, as they have a long journey home. Those arriving on Tiree, use later ferry from Oban as they have a distance to travel on the mainland.


Thank you
