The Small Isles, Coll and Tiree

The Small Isles comprise Rum, Eigg, Canna and Muck. They are very diverse; Rum has some of Scotland's most dramatic mountains, Eigg has the largest population and an amazing rock peak, Canna is green and verdant whilst Muck is small and fertile. The islands are alike only in being such memorable places to visit and walk.

Further south are Coll and Tiree - two low lying islands usually accessed by ferry from Oban. They have the reputation of being amongst Scotland's sunniest places. Despite looking so similar on the map, Coll is rugged and wild with amazing sandy coves, whilst Tiree is flatter, fertile and more populated - renowned for its surfing.
