Picture that turquoise and deep blue sea, lapping white sandy beaches that you associate with the Caribbean. Remove the people and the palm trees.... This is Coll....
Coll Hotel sits in its own grounds, with a beautiful garden overlooking a row of white-washed cottages at the harbour side. There is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and the hotel is appointed to a high standard, with six en-suite rooms, four of which look down the bay to the Treshnish Isles, Staffa, Iona and Jura. We have an excellent reputation for fine lunches and dinners, whether in the Restaurant or Bar and our recent awards are featured on the left.
Coll has been designated as Scotland's first 'Dark Sky Island'. Please come and enjoy it!
Spring has sprung!
Once again the Calmac ferries come every day! There’s wild flowers everywhere and new lambs in the fields - and occasionally on the roads! As ever, it’s very easy to get a beach all to yourself. Coll Hotel is already in full swing for another season - our garden is blooming beautifully and we have seafood in abundance! Advance bookings mean that available accommodation is limited, so call us now on 01879 230334 to book your visit. We’d love to hear from you.
