Street corner layabouts
Tiree is teeming with new life - little oystercatcher chicks, eider ducklings, baby starlings, lambs, calves. The farm animals roam freely over the roads, the machair, the beaches and the settlements. There are sheep outside the one little supermarket and cattle outside my front door. This pair of youngsters, hanging out idly on the street corner as youngsters do worldwide, were in the little township of Sandaig.

Cattle were first domesticated in Tiree around 6000 years ago, and have been an important part of the island's economy since around 1700.

Behind them is a house in one of the other distinctive architectural styles of the island, the 'spotty' house, in which the thickly laid mortar is painted white and the stones left in their original colour.
