All aboard for Oban to Coll on the Balmoral

Coll welcomers.

I have never had the opportunity to take a sailing ship out of Oban and to visit some of my favourite places by sea.

So when the opportunity arose to take a trip on the MV Balmoral, a boat owned by a trust, which normally limits herself to the south of the UK, I was delighted. I took with me a friend who, despite living in the town for more than 30 years, had also never had the opportunity to take to the high seas.

We set out in bright sunlight and headed towards Coll, on the way passing all the places you imagine – the edge of Kererra, Duart Castle, Craignure, Salen, Tobermory and then past Cailleach Island at the top of Mull to views over to Staffa, the Dutchman’s Cap, Lunga and the Treshnish Isles.
