The Hebridean Trust are looking at the future of Hynish, including how Hynish will be managed, and how the buildings and space could best serve the community.
Hynish is an important part of Tiree’s landscape and heritage – and it is important that plans for its future are informed by Tiree’s community.

Please visit our dedicated page for more information on our plans for the future of Hynish and how you can get involved.


The Hebridean Trust was established in 1982 with the aim to support, stimulate and develop the economies of island communities, to restore and maintain buildings of outstanding architectural work, to protect and preserve the natural environment and to inform the general public about the Hebrides, its way of life, its Gaelic culture and its natural heritage.

Since then, about a quarter of a million people have enjoyed a Hebridean experience as we have restored buildings and developed housing, acquired and managed protected areas, provided facilities for disadvantaged young people to have subsidised holidays, created exhibitions and undertaken wildlife and archaeological surveys.

As a charity, the Trust relies entirely on the generosity of its volunteers and the financial support received from a wide range of statutory and private sources.


The Hebridean Trust Restructuring

The Hebridean Trust will be restructured early 2023 to become a Community Trust with a specific focus on Hynish: allowing the ownership of the Hynish asset to be in the hands of the Tiree community.  To get to this stage a Feasibility Study has been completed - which clearly maps out the future options for Hynish and the associated costs, providing a solid and informed basis to start from.  The first stage has started.  Funding has been secured for expert investigative work to be done that will provide clear solutions to the building challenges at Hynish.  This work will inform all future renovations to the buildings to ensure they will be as energy efficient as possible.
