Coll Bunkhouse


Arinagour, Isle Of Coll, Argyll, PA78 6SY

    New, 5 Star hostel on the Isle of Coll. Experience Scotland at its best with beautiful beaches, fantastic wildlife and unspoilt wilderness all on your doorstep.

    Coll Bunkhouse offers excellent hostel accommodation in the Inner Hebrides. Experience the West coast of Scotland at its finest with beautiful beaches, amazing wildlife and unspoilt wilderness all on your doorstep.


    The bunkhouse is small and cosy, with 16 beds in two dorms of 6 and one private room of 4 – ideal for small groups or independent travellers. The building is brand new, with a fully equipped kitchen and modern facilities throughout. Whether you’re looking for an island adventure or a quiet place to relax, a warm welcome awaits.


    The beauty of Coll is that it’s a hidden gem amongst Scotland’s islands and away from the regular tourist trail. Getting here is an adventure in itself! But once you arrive you can take your pick of beaches to walk to (you might be the only one there!), go wildlife-spotting along the coast or take advantage of the fine food and drink available in the village.

    Public Transport Directions

    Although it’s remote, getting to Coll is not as hard as you might think. There are daily ferries during the summer months, operated by Calmac, and the journey takes just under three hours from Oban. With opportunities to spot wildlife and take in the spectacular scenery, it makes a great way to start your island adventure. There are also regular flights with Hebridean Air from Oban to Coll airport and the trip lasts around 30 minutes.

    If you’re coming to Coll then first of all you will need to get to Oban. Trains from Edinburgh and Glasgow are operated by Scotrail, whilst Citylink provide a bus service throughout Scotland. There are spaces on the train to bring your bicycle, but make sure that you book a space for your bike in advance. You can also drive to Oban and leave your car in one of the free car parks if you want to save costs on the ferry crossing.
