Coll and Tiree are two little jewels basking in the Hebridean Sea. Steeped in the romantic legends and tangled history of the western isles, they abound with natural wonders, abundant wildlife and ancient remains. Offering peace, tranquillity and spiritual calm, they can also be wildly invigorating as the machair (coastal meadowland) comes alive during the summer months with myriad varieties of wild flowers creating a colourful carpet along the shoreline.

Just as in the old song, we sail from Oban, passing Tobermory and on to Coll. From our base in comfortable and friendly guesthouse accommodation we will explore a few of Coll’s unspoilt beaches of glistening white sand and some of the ancient cairns and Iron Age forts that litter the island. We also visit the RSPB reserve, which includes a growing resident population of corncrakes.

A short passage takes us on to Tiree, renowned as one of the sunniest places in Britain. There are many more wonderful beaches, machair and monuments to be found here and we will also visit the Skerryvore Lighthouse Museum, which records the building of Britain’s tallest lighthouse.

Tour highlights:

  • Sailing out of Oban Bay and along the Sound of Mull
  • Unspoilt beaches and flower-strewn machair
  • Birdwatching at the RSPB Reserve on Coll
  • Enjoying the sunshine on Tiree (hopefully)
