Coll is an island of the inner Hebrides, more Northerly and even quieter and less populated than its neighbour Tiree.
Truly a place to get away from it all, Coll has some stunning scenery, such as the wide sandy beaches and dunes at Feall Bay and Crossapol, and lonely standing stones. Perfect for walking, a visit to Ben Hogh in the centre of the island offers panoramic views.
Low-lying yet exposed to the Altlantic winds, Coll is said to be one of the sunniest places in the West of Scotland, the rainclouds reserving their loads for the higher ground on Mull and the mountainous mainland.
The island is also an important site for birdlife, and the RSPB manage a reserve to protect a huge diversity of species, such as migratory geese, Lapwing and Corncrake. More can be learnt at the Totronald Stables Visitor Information Centre.
Just enjoy the scenery and do a little birdwatching.
