Dark Sky, stunning beaches, warmer climes and local produce. Coll has it all in the winter!

September 7th 2018

As the nights start to draw in, there’s no better time to be on Coll. Not only do you not have to stay up light to see our awesome Dark Sky, but our daytime temperatures will soon be a good bit warmer than the mainland thanks to the Gulf Stream effect.

Autumn and Winter walks on our many stunning white sands are not to be missed and, before settling down with the lights off to gaze at our starry sky, you can feast on local produce and (hopefully) get a chance to chat with some of our welcoming community at the café or the hotel and bar. If you’d like to get a real feel for island life, try a winter visit.


New Year, New Adventures – experience island life

January 5th 2018

You’ve perhaps visited Scottish islands in the summer but have you tried the winter.

There’s nothing like it for dramatic scenery (not just here, but on the journey too), relaxation and the opportunity to experience real community life. After a day of cycling, walking, kayaking, and visiting our awesome beaches, or choosing a quiet spot to watch wildlife, you can relax in our 5-star bunkhouse (Visit Scotland), enjoy a pint and a natter with locals in the pub, and gaze at our awesome starry sky on your way back to the Bunkhouse . Did you know that Coll benefits from the warmth of the Gulf Stream – often considerably warmer than the mainland – and has some of the highest number of hours of sunshine per year in the UK.

Coll Bunkhouse has availability throughout January and February 2018 for individual travellers or groups.   We have great offers available for ‘whole bunkhouse’ bookings (sleeps up to 16), ideal for groups looking for a unique location for a celebration, or for walking/ cycling etc.   We also have a discount available for longer stays (5 nights or more) which is automatically applied on booking.   Winter is a great time of year to relax and enjoy the sense of community on Coll, and a longer stay gives you the chance to experience the island at its best.
