Isle of Coll – What to Do

Some of the activities we would recommend:
  • Play a round of golf on the rugged 9 hole links course – just a mile from White House Lodge
  • Climb Coll’s highest hill, Ben Hogh, for a bit of exercise and the spectacular views. (Ben Hogh is 326 foot above sea level)
  • Attend one of the classes (adult and children’s) at An Cridhe, the new community centre. Badminton, indoor hockey, archery – pretty much anything that you would want to do
  • Take a walk on one of the 23 beautiful white sandy beaches
  • Grab your rod and go fishing in one of the numerous lochs for brown trout or in the sea for mackerel
  • Visit local artist Kip Poulson’s gallery in Arinagour
  • Chat to the locals in the public bar at the Coll Hotel
  • Have a seafood platter in the Gannet restaurant at the Coll Hotel
  • Go on a guided bird and flower walk with the RSPB warden
  • Take the kids sailing in one of the little sailing dinghies with the Coll Sailing Club
  • Build sandcastles and catch crabs on the shore by the White House (400 yards from White House Lodge)
  • Rent a bike from the Post Office and take a cycling tour of the island
  • Sit on the deck at White House Lodge and gaze at the stars – there are no streetlights and the island has Dark Skies Status. Please bear in mind that it gets dark VERY late in the summer.
