The company is named after a beautiful island at the North West coast of Scotland. Tanera Mòr is the largest of the Summer Isles, a group of islands in the mouth of Loch Broom on the west coast of county Ross & Cromarty in Scotland.

The island is home to herons, buzzard and red grouse as well as various seabirds. Tanera Mòr is the last of the Summer Isles still inhabited and even has a school boat, a bar and a post office that issues its own stamps.

Tanera has a natural safe anchorage, which is considered one of the best in Scotland. The Vikings knew it as “Hawarymoir”, the “Island of the safe harbour”. The name is of Norwegian origin, probably derived from “Tamh ri rath”, which means shelter from heavy rain or storm.
