Isle of Coll Artist Retreats


The Hebridean Isle of Coll is a small and tranquil island which lies off the West coast of Scotland between Mull and Tiree.

The Isle of Coll is a Southern Hebridean island lying about four miles west of Mull. It extends approximately thirteen miles in length and is about four miles across at it’s widest point. Coll is fairly central in the coastal chain of Hebridean islands, and has breathtaking views of surrounding islands such as Skye, the Treshnish Isles. The views from Arrol House enable you to see as far out as the Outer Hebridean isles of Barra and South Uist. 

One of the most beautiful aspects of the island is the amount of incredible white shell-sandy beaches. The waters surrounding Coll are home to many of the island’s wildlife such as seals, basking sharks, minke whales and dolphins.

The island is also home to the famous Corncrake and has sightings of sea eagles from time to time.
