The Island of Coll is situated 4 miles west of Mull in the Inner Hebrides, just off the western Scottish coast.
Measuring 13 miles in length and around 4 miles across at its widest point, Coll has long stretches of white sandy beaches rising into large dunes and is most well-known for the Breachacha Castle, an impressive 15th Century fortress.
The island also offers ideal scenery for long walks and wildlife watching; it’s a great place for spotting seals, basking sharks and minke whales, as well as the famous local corncrake bird, known locally as ‘the nutty noisemaker’.
Coll’s ferry terminal is in the village of Arinagour, the island’s primary settlement on the southeast coast. There are frequent sailings to the nearby Isle of Tiree and to Oban on the mainland, which are all operated by one of the UK’s largest ferry companies.
The Isle of Tiree is the most westerly landmass of the Scottish Inner Hebrides, situated immediately to the southwest of Coll.
Just twelve miles long and three miles wide, Tiree is actually one of the sunniest slices of the UK, boasting a mild climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. Predominantly flat, Tiree is nicknamed ‘the land below the waves’, with low lying swathes of fertile soils and great gusts of wind, attracting professional windsurfers from around the world. Combined with the agreeable weather, the white-sandy beaches make Tiree an excellent family holiday island, offering child-friendly rock pools and various archaeological sites including two Iron Age brochs.
Ferry travel is prevalent in the Scottish islands, and the mainland offers many gateways. Oban, the largest town in Argyll and The Isles, to the Isle of Tiree lasts just a few hours, while ferry crossings from the Isle of Coll usually last under an hour, with frequent sailings every week.
