Along with Mull and Iona, Tiree is at risk of losing its only library. This is the one situated in Tiree High School. Council Cuts will axe the librarian post at the school. It is a valuable community resource, and Tiree Community Council is supporting the Mull and Iona Library Action Group (MILAG) in their endevours.

In response to a letter from our TCC secretary, Alison, we have received this update from Mr Nick Scroggie, Compliance manager for the Digital team, on the timescale for the first super-fast broadband installations on Tiree. This is a lot earlier than we first expected!
Apologies for the delay in coming back to you. Work has started, or is certainly about to start, in the Scarinish Exchange Area, so you should see new cabinets going up shortly, with the first premises live by June, if not earlier.
The latest information is available here
I hope that is of some help
Tiree Community Council have agreed to pursue the case for better mobile coverage on the island. A small short life sub-committee will be led by Rosemary Omand to look at what can be done.
