Overview

Colin and Susan Woodcock have been producing work as artists on Tiree since 2001. Our paintings, textiles, fine art prints and cards can be seen in our Home Gallery in Sunbeam Cottage at Balemartine. You can now book a relaxing break in Blue Beyond Cottage. From the stunning coastal location you can watch wildlife from the door and perhaps be inspired to do some artwork yourself.

The Farmhouse Cafe at Ballemartine has a great reputation for fresh food. We arrive on a Saturday about noon and were only just fitted in because it was so busy.
