Get away from it all, in this storm pod on the Isle of Coll. This pod is eco-friendly, with a turf roof, meaning that it stays warm and cosy all year round.

The island itself may only be small (13 miles long and 3 miles wide) but with more than 20 stunning beaches and a variety of wildlife, you will always find something beautiful to look at. Furthermore it has been designated a Dark Skies Island, meaning that there is little light pollution, so a fantastic place for star gazers to visit!

The pod sleeps up to 6 people, with one double room, a bunk bed and a couple of sofa beds. It has a compact kitchen with basic amenities and if the sun is shining you can dine al fresco on the outdoor terrace. An electric shower and flushing toilet completes the facilities.

There is a strict no smoking policy within the pod. Dogs are welcome for an additional £10 charge, but please remember that the pod is situated on a working farm, so it is necessary to keep them on a lead when outside.

There is no Wi-Fi, so you are totally disconnected from the outside world. Wonderful! If you need to stay in touch, then Wi-Fi is available at the community centre and hotel in the village.

Minimum 2 night stay with prices starting from £80 per night in low season for up to 4 guests, up to £120 per night in high season based on up to 6 people sharing. Weekly rates are between £500 - £650.
