Music Coll 2023
How to get to the Isle of Coll: Coll can be reached by Caledonian MacBrayne ferry from Oban. The journey takes approximately 3 hours and is arguably one of the most beautiful journeys in Scotland. The Ferry costs £19.00 return for a foot passenger. To bring a car with you costs £101.30. You will need to book your car on the ferry well in advance as the summer sailings are very booked up.
See the timetable below for the cost of bringing a car on the ferry or for reservations call: 0800 0665000 or click here.
It is also possible to fly to Coll from Connel near Oban with Hebridean Air Services. There are only a limited number of flights which will sadly not suit the Music Coll dates and the plane is small!
