A chance to wander round the Island, on the beaches and chill out and stay in one of the best hostels in Scotland !

Come and chill out on the Hebridean island of Coll, which is a tranquil island off the west coast of Scotland, where there are sandy beaches, acres of machair, a thriving corncrake population to discover and only the second 'Dark Skies' area in Scotland.

The Isle of Coll is located west of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Coll is known for its sandy beaches, which rise to form large sand dunes, for its Corncrakes (rare birds), and for Breacachadh Castle. It is approximately 13 miles long and about 4 miles wide. There is plenty of information about the island on http://www.visitcoll.co.uk/index.php

We'll be staying in a community owned 5-star bunkhouse, for three nights while we explore the island. There may be a chance to go seal watching in kayaks (weather permitting) and given, the long summer evenings, maybe a beach BBQ.

The Leader will be bringing his Blokart (See picture below) for the windier days. Waterproof clothing advised for this activity - be prepared to come away with a big silly grin on your face!!!

This event can be booked to coincide with the Tiree midweek (4 night) event so that you can have a whole week away in the Hebrides. These two events must be booked separately to ensure a full week!
