The Island of Coll is part of the Inner Hebrides in Scotland, stretching thirteen miles long and just four miles wide.
Fringed by sandy beaches and filled with flower-covered machairs, Coll’s scenery is one of the most delightful in the Scottish Isles. On the other hand, surfers, windsurfers and sailors frequent this small island’s shores for the immense breaks and classically British, windy weather.
Arinagour is the main settlement, home to around half the population, found to the west of loch Eathearrna. As the first point of call for passengers disembarking the ferry, Arinagour is well connected with the island’s top attraction, Breacachadh Castle and offers immediate sights of the wonderful Hebridean wildlife which includes puffins, the Lochoir Highland Pony, basking sharks and minke whales.
The port city of Oban is one of the mainland’s gateways to the Inner Hebrides, so there are regular crossings to the Isle of Coll from there. On top of that, the neighbouring Isle of Tiree to the southwest offers daily routes, usually lasting under an hour.
