Our Island, Our Future

Tiree Ranger Service

Tiree Trust took over the management of the Ranger Service from Tiree Rural Development at the end of 2016.

Tiree has benefited from a full time Ranger since August 2010. In early 2017, Stephanie Cope was appointed to the post as the new member of staff for our island.  

Our Ranger is here to help you enjoy Tiree’s spectacular natural environment responsibly. Duties include welcoming guests to distribute information and to ask drivers of camper vans, motor homes and caravans for their assistance in protecting our sensitive machair.

During the holiday season (June-September) Stephanie will mostly be located in the Tiree Rural Centre; spending some of her time in the Trust Office at the Island Centre.

Our Ranger helps with the production of heritage brochures and leaflets: covering subjects as diverse as visitor maps, using single track roads, wildlife guides, spotting birds and sites of religious and/or historic interest.

The Ranger is responsible for offering natural heritage activities for children; including work with youngsters at the school. Other duties include monitoring access for disabled guests, organising guided walks, maintaining off road parking areas and reporting on Tiree Ranger Service activities in An Tirisdeach.

Ranger events and downloadable walks are publicised on the Friends of Nàdair Thiriodh, Discover Tiree website and by way of the innovative new Tiree App – suitable for both phone and tablet usage.

You can follow the activities of our Ranger – plus the latest news and live event updates – through the Nàdair Thiriodh Blog, Facebook and Twitter.

The three year contract for this post is funded by Scottish Natural Heritage, Discover Tiree and Tiree Trust.
