From wildlife to watersports or cycling to stargazing, there is plenty to do on Coll.
We recommend getting out and about by foot or bike as much as possible when on Coll. There are 23 beaches to explore and generally you'll have them all to yourself. Our favourite spot on the island is possibly North Shore (near Sorisdale) but the walk around Calgary Point, taking in Crossapol and Feall Bay, is another highlight. You can find a range of Coll walks on the excellent website, Walk Highlands.
Island Tours are available on a Tuesday at 10am and a Friday at 10.30am with a local guide. Tours last two hours and visit the scenic beauty spots on Coll in a 4 x 4 Mitsubishi People Carrier and cost £15. Booking is advisable by phoning 01879 230520.
Kayak Hire is available locally in the village from Carol Flett. Four single kayaks and two double sit-on kayaks are available to hire by the hour, half-day or full day from just £10. To book, contact Carol on 01879 230436.
Sharks and Wildlife Boat Trips take place regularly in the summer with Basking Shark Scotland although booking in advance is essential. Full information is available on their website.
Coll has some of the darkest skies in Europe, making it a fantastic place for stargazing. The Coll Dark Skies Group applied to the International Dark-Sky Association and was officially recognised as an official Dark Sky Community in December 2013. Throughout the Autumn and Winter Coll Bunkhouse organise stargazing weekends (Coll & The Cosmos) when you can come to Coll and learn all about the night sky and what it is that makes Coll so special!
