Winter Escapes on the Caribbean of the Hebrides
September 11th 2019
Winter escapes are at their best on the Isle of Coll. Picture yourself on white sands at the edge of the world. View our awesome starry sky from the doorstep. Dine out with a view. Feel the welcome!
From beautiful white sands and a picturesque village on the banks of Loch Eatharna, to great food and drink (with a view) and an awesome starry sky, the Isle of Coll is a true getaway. Time moves more slowly here and relaxation takes on a new meaning, even if you are one of our more active visitors. As Scotland’s only island International Dark Sky Community it is no surprise that astronomers come here to enjoy our starry sky, but you don’t have to be an expert, or even an amateur, to be amazed by what is on offer here. Our days are also quite something as we benefit from some of the highest sunshine hours per annum in the UK and, thanks to the Gulf Stream, have a more temperate winter climate than the mainland. During the day there are loads of white sands to explore and the road that leads you to them has a different view around every corner. Most of the island facilities are situated in our beautiful village where visitors receive a warm welcome. Whiling away the time in the village is not just for locals. Our modern community centre provides a multitude of facilities for locals and visitors, from sports and games to events, a gym (inductions can be arranged), reading material and a wonderful space to relax. Our local restaurants use local produce where possible and have wonderful views. Visitors regularly comment on the welcome received. We are open over Christmas and New Year and have a great group discounts during the winter months. Additional discounts are available for long stays.

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.
