Col - an Island home


Struay, where Katie Morag lives, is actually a fictional place but based on the island of Col, an island off the west coast of Scotland. Can you find it on the map below?

Now if you look on here, you will be able to find an aerial photograph of Col. This has been taken by a satellite far away in space from what we call a bird's eye perspective - straight above. You can use the zoom button to explore different parts of the island and see what features you can find.

Can you find these places?

  1. sea
  2. sandy beach
  3. rocky beach
  4. houses
  5. fields
  6. lochs (or we might call them tarns)
  7. roads
  8. where the ferry comes in
  9. some woodland
  10. an airport


Well done if you have found them !


Now look at this map of Col. This has also been taken from a bird's eye perspective. How is it similar or different to the aerial photograph? Can you find any of the features? (I'm sorry it's not a great map but you cannot download OS maps.)
