Discover Coll & Tiree

Much of western Coll in an RSPB reserve, and a vast variety of birds can be spotted, including the corncrake, one of Britain’s rarest birds. The waters around Coll and Tiree are prime cetacean-spotting territory, and and dolphins, porpoises, minke whales, seals, basking sharks and even the occasional orca can be seen. Coll is one of the best places in Scotland to watch the night sky. Tiree and Coll are both known for their beaches, which fringe the islands and provide miles of fine white sands and great surfing and windsurfing. Tiree – sometime called the ‘Hawaii of the north’ – is a mecca for surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers.  The island has a vibrant surf scene and is home to some excellent surfing schools.
