Weather on Coll

beach-sand-wind

Weather is very important on Coll – understanding it, forecasting it, experiencing it, surviving it, and talking endlessly about it. The most important aspect of weather is probably the wind.

The Isle of Coll enjoys a relatively mild climate, influenced by the Gulf Stream, with frosts and snow being a rarity. Tiree, the next island to Coll, has been recorded as being the sunniest place in Britain. 
The disadvantage of being out in the Atlantic is wind. We do get a fair bit of it, but at least it keeps what few midges survive here at bay.
 Being a low-lying island, rain often passes by to plague the higher peaks of Mull, Ardnamurchan and Rum. One is often rewarded with bright, clear blue skies whilst all around the panorama shows pendulous clouds over the distant hills (in particular, we often pity the residents of Mull). This is the reason national TV weather forecasts have little relevance to Coll and probably why every Collach is a weather guru!

One thing we all agree on, you will require high factor sun cream!
 Unlike many mainland areas, the weather here can change in minutes. Always be prepared for a complete change which can come without warning. The weather here is generally always exciting and in excess.
