This most attractive of islands is very different in character from its neighbour Tiree but enjoys much the same climate – it is one of the sunniest spots in Britain. It boasts some 23 different beaches, small rock bound coves along its northern coast and wide bays backed by dunes at it southern end.
Rich in wildlife it is one of the best places in Britain to find the rare orchid Irish ladies Tresses. Its nature reserve is an excellent place to hear, if not see , the elusive corncrake.
The island is the home of the author and illustrator Mairi Hedderwick , best known for the Katie Morag series of children’s books based on the fictional Island of Struay or in fact Coll.
Accommodation options include a hotel, B&Bs, guest house, holiday cottages and a campsite
