Here is an extract regarding responsible access:
Recreational users and land managers alike welcome responsible 'wild camping' on Tiree. When camping please choose a site well away from houses to ensure disturbance to both parties is minimised. Unlike official campsites, this type of camping is lightweight, done in small numbers and only for up to three nights in any one place. On Tiree, as houses are widely scattered, it is preferred that all campers seek permission before pitching their tent.
The only public toilets on the island are located at Scarinish. Campers staying elsewhere on the island are reminded that they should leave nothing but footprints at their campsite. Burying of faeces is not recommend on machair or sand dune areas as digging into the sand can instigate erosion; as with all litter, faeces should be removed from these areas in a plastic carrier bag, and disposed of responsibly.
Driving off metalled roads beyond the verge with a Campervan, or in a vehicle to access tent-sites is not permitted.
Please avoid damaging grass by not lighting camp-fires on grassland.
