Episode 10: ‘Day and Night’ – Isle of Coll
What’s the best time to experience the Isle of Coll? My answer to this might not be what you expect – let’s travel there together in this episode of Wild for Scotland.
‘Day and Night’ is a story about falling in love with an island, regardless of when you head out to explore.
This is the final episode of season 1 of Wild for Scotland and in many ways, the show has come full circle. This story picks up exactly where ‘Lullaby’ – the first story I wrote for this podcast – left off. We’re going to the Isle of Coll, first exploring its sugged coastline and rocky outcrops by boat, then seeing a different side to it at night.
After the story, I share some of my top tips for a trip to the Isle of Coll. There isn’t much to do here, but in a way that is exactly the appeal!
Are you ready? Great – let’s travel to Scotland!
