Coll Tartan The tartan was designed by 8 year old Maria MacIntyre who won a school competition on Coll. All the tartans had to be inspired by the colours on Coll – the heather, the sea and the sky. A men's 8-yard kilt costs around £200-250 plus VATA men's 5-yard kilt costs around £160-200 plus VATA child's kilt costs around £65-75
Children from a school in England have written to Coll Hello Coll,We have been learning all about Coll. How many shops do you have in Coll? Have you seen any sealions? Is the school a private school? Is it Catholic? We have learnt that there are only 200 people in Coll and only 15 children!We really like your beaches!Please can you write back Coll.From Year 2 b, Great Sankey Primary School • Webmaster's reply : Hello Year 2 b. There is one shop, one post office and a gift shop/arty sort of place, and a pottery. The island school is for primary children only and is of no special faith. There are, indeed, 200 people living here all the year round with a few more in the summer (holiday homes and visitors) but the number of children is about 50, not 15. After primary school the children go to boarding school in Oban and come home weekends either by ferry or aeroplane (weather permitting of course). Quite often, in the winter when the weather is bad, the kids can't get back to school - but it never bothers them too much! I hope this helps you.
