Millhouse Hostel on The Isle of Tiree will remain closed while current government guidelines remain in place.

Evolving government guidelines don’t currently favour the traditional hostel offering. We take heart in the hope of messages of support received and know that so many people have plans to explore this beautiful island of ours and use the hostel in future.

When we all are able to start travelling freely again, and, the guidelines allow for communal accommodations, the position will be reviewed and we hope to be here for you.

We want to extend that warm welcome that our guests have come to know and expect!

Please stay well, look after one another and keep in touch via the website/social media which will be updated with any changes as they happen.
