Rockvale has been in local fisherman Neil MacPhail’s family for the last three generations. The croft came to the MacPhail family after the First World War when the crofts of Balephetrish were allotted to returning servicemen on the Club System. At this time the crofts were all given names, Parkhouse, Hillview, Hillcrest and Rockvale to name a few. The surrounding croft is now rented out to a local crofter. 

The Guest House is run by Alison and her team. Neil works off the coast of Tiree in a creel boat fishing for brown crab, velvet crab and lobster.

Alison had over seven years of experience in Scotland’s hospitality industry and has learnt her trade in places such as The Three Chimneys in Skye and One Devonshire Gardens (now known as Hotel du Vin) in Glasgow.

We hope that our combination of local knowledge and experience will help to make sure your stay on Tiree meets all of your expectations…..and exceeds them!
