Lauchlan and Charlotte Maclean-Bristol are the owners of Hill Cottage Coll. They are based by the coast in Lytham St Annes, but try to spend as much time on the Isle of Coll as possible. They have three children, Hector, Hettie and Verity.
Lauchlan was brought up on the island and lived there until he moved to the mainland at the age of 25. His parents bought the ruined family castle (Breacachadh) on the Island in the 1950s and renovated it over a 25 year period, still living there today.
Both Lauchlan’s brothers moved away from the island at similar ages but both have been lured back by the call of the island. Charlie is converted the Round House into his holiday retreat, and Alex has refurbished the grade 2 listed White House into his family home.
Hill Cottage Coll was previously owned by Lauchlan's parents, who purchased the property in the 70's. Since taking over Hill Cottage, Lauchlan and Charlotte have decided to give the property a new lease of life and convert the bolthole into a chic holiday cottage.
Lauchlan and Charlotte also own a sister property on Coll, called White House Lodge. The luxury 4 bedroom lodge is ideal for larger groups and families.
