For lovers of
Nature and wildlife
History and heritage
Catch an early morning ferry from Oban and sail on a three hour trip through the Sound of Mull, spotting Duart Castle and the iconic coloured harbour of Tobermory on the way past.
On arrival on Coll, you'll be met at the pier at Arinagour by a native islander, who'll take you on a 4x4 tour, pointing out historical sites and giving you an insight into island life on this friendly little paradise. Travelling through the tranquil village of Arinagour (with its row of whitewashed cottages recognisable to any Katie Morag fans), the drive will then take you off to the two islands' castles, off-road to a pristine beach and a chance to spot an elusive corncrake on the bird reserve.
Precious beach-time is a must, with a chance to breathe in the clear Hebridean air. A longer tour on a Wednesday takes in a circular tour and gives adventurous visitors a further three hours to explore more of the island at their leisure.
