Tanera 2016 - a special offer for early booking.

29 October 2015

Tanera has had another happy summer, with lots of familiar faces coming back for their favourite taste of wild fresh air, and a fair few new families experiencing the west coast delights too. 

October on Tanera

Now it’s that time of year again ... to make sure everything is weatherproof for the winter and start looking forward to next year. We are very pleased to announce that we will be open for business in Spring - Summer 2016.

We have a special offer for you organised people: if you book before November 13th we will keep our 2015 prices.

We think early May is a lovely time on Tanera – eider ducks cooing, oyster catchers screeching – so we will start the season on the first weekend of May, and it will end round-about the equinox in late September.Spring is time for sea pinks

This year Port Cottage will be available for let as well as the Murdo’s, Farmhouse, Schoolhouse and Fuchsia. We have recently been doing a bit of work on Port, so new interior photos will follow shortly. And, because we firmly believe that a longer stay is better, we offer a 10% discount on the second week, and any subsequent weeks, when you book for more than one week.

There’s a change in the 2016 season to lighten the load on change-over days: Murdo’s, Farmhouse and Schoolhouse will change over on Saturday as always, whilst Fuchsia and Port will change over on Friday.

We are delighted that Tim and Holly – who ran the island in 2014 and 2015 – will be back in 2016 after a winter of soft-living down south! Lizzie will be helping to organise things from the mainland (when Rosie and Alexander give her a chance), and Bill will – as ever – be soldiering on. Rich now works for the Scottish Wildlife Trust, but we’ll be roping him in nonetheless!Wild bookmaking

We have already arranged a couple of residential courses for the season: over the late May bank holiday there will be two sea kayaking courses with Jules Macleod of NorWest Sea Kayaking, and in mid-September Jan Kilpatrick of Wildtiles will be running a new Bookmaking course: ‘See Sound, Sea Shore’ – combining art and creative writing to explore this wonderful wild place. 

We are excited to be working on a new stamp issue for 2016 ...we'll let you know more in due course ... 

Tanera is still on the market, but we are keen to keep the island bustling with life until the right person comes along.

So - we look forward to welcoming you to Tanera in 2016 ...have a wonderful winter in the meantime.A chilly bay
