Coll RSPB Reserve
This beautiful RSPB reserve on the south west end of the Island of Coll is 1075 ha of white beaches, sand dunes, machair grassland and moorland. The reserve is a key site in the Corncrake Recovery Programme. Present from April to September, corncrakes are easy to hear – their rasping call going on all night. The reserve is also a haven for wintering geese, breeding waders and farmland birds. There’s an information bothy and a corncrake viewing platform. There are three suggested walking routes leading from the two car parks and ranger-led walks are available.
