An Cridhe is the Isle of Coll’s brand new community centre, opened by HRH Princess Anne on 11th July 2012. An Cridhe means “the heart”, and this building is intended to be at the heart of life on Coll. It is a multi-purpose building that caters for the many different needs of islanders and visitors.
The building is open every day from 9am to 9pm and is available for the local community and visitors alike. The main hall, stage, multi-function room, kitchen and bar are all available to hire and there is also a mini-gym and quiet room for general use. There are public toilets and showers available 24 hours a day, accessed via the back door when the rest of the building is closed.
An Cridhe makes an excellent venue for a variety of events from meetings and conferences to weddings, parties and ceilidhs. If you’ve got an idea for an event or are interested in holding a function then please don’t hesitate to get in touch – our friendly staff are on hand to help.

Along with Coll Bunkhouse, An Cridhe is managed by Development Coll, a local charity formed to benefit the community of the Isle of Coll. The Mission Statement for An Cridhe and Coll Bunkhouse is:
“To provide a centre for culture, interaction and warm hospitality to visitors and the local community. Both buildings should be run for the overall benefit of the community and should be financially self-sustaining.”
