A’ Bhuain – Tiree Homecoming 2016

Work has begun preparing for A’ Bhuain – Tiree Homecoming 2016, which runs on Tiree
from Monday 23 to Friday 27 May. This will be a great week for anyone interested in the
history and culture of the island, and includes talks from Professor Donald Meek on what
Tiree means to him, Dr John Holliday on Viking Tiree and Ishbel MacKinnon (the archivist at Inveraray Castle) on the secrets of her collection; tours of both graveyards; bird-watching with the island’s expert; concerts and dances; and a chance to meet islanders, old and new friends at the daily cafe hosted by island groups. The week is designed around descendants of those who left Tiree, but everyone in the world is welcome – however, there’s only room for 200!
