Day Trips to the Isle of Coll
On Thursdays, the CalMac summer ferry timetable allows an 8 hour stay on Coll. You leave Oban at 08.30am and can spend most of the day on Coll, returning to Oban at 10.15pm. Think of the possibilities ! This must be one of the best 'day trips' one can take from Oban and is becoming increasingly popular.
Once you get to Coll you can hire a bike (or bring your own of course) or just saunter around and enjoy some Hebridean hospitality & cuisine, it's completely up to you.
For a shorter stay (2 hours) you can come on a Saturday, Sunday or Monday (summer) or Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday (winter). The cruise itself is well worth the while.
On Mondays and Wednesdays you can fit in a day trip by plane, from Connel airport just north of Oban. The flight itself is quite an experience and on a good day the views are spectacular as you fly between the mountains and hills of Mull. For more information on plane times please see Hebridean Airways' timetable
