Crossapol Bay near the south end of Coll. With over 20 beaches on Coll you will discover that most of them will be shared with a seal, otter and yourself. Most beaches are not close to the main ferry point so you do need to do a fair amount of walking (so good walking boots are advisable), a bike, or other form of transport.
View over the sand dunes near Crossapol. The machair landscape is very important for a wide range of birds and wildlife. On Coll the machair provides breeding habitat for Snipe, Dunlin, Lapwing and Redshank. Farming methods and the RSBP 1200 hectare reserve on the island are also designed to help the rare migratory corncrakes breed.
