Immerse yourself in Coll and Tiree

Known as the ‘sunshine isle’, Tiree is home to some of the best beaches in Scotland. If you seek tranquillity, freedom of space, and clean pure air, the Isle of Tiree has it all. Though only 12 miles long and 3 miles wide, the sky and sea stretch from horizon to horizon. With no woodland and only three sizeable hills on an otherwise flat landscape, there is nothing to obscure the view. There is something of a fascination for all visitors, young and old. The beautiful beaches provide miles of potential sandcastles, gently sloping paddling pools, and windsurfing for the more adventurous. 

Coll enjoys some of the highest sunshine hours in the UK per annum, so be sure to take a walk on the secluded beaches, marvel at the fantastic wildlife and enjoy a dram or two in the friendly Coll Hotel. Located far from the obscuring haze of light pollution, Coll has some of the darkest skies in Europe and offers fantastic star gazing opportunities, such as Coll and the Cosmos - an astronomical adventure. Even on a rainy day, Coll's community centre, An Cridhe, offers a great space to relax, read or play sports, alongside the locals, making all visitors feel welcome.
