Tiree Maritime Trust is a registered charity based on the Isle of Tiree. It was founded in 2005 and its main aims are:
“To advance education and training in traditional boat building and maintenance and thereby preserve an important part of the islands heritage and history. In furtherance thereof, but not otherwise the Trustees shall seek to encourage local interest in the traditional wooden working boats of the area and the maritime heritage that surrounds them, and thereby pass on skills in the same”
This web site outlines some of the Maritime Tradition of Tiree and the recent attempts to preserve not only its historic boats but the skills required to maintain them.
