Colonsay is a tiny and remote island two and a quarter hours by ferry from the mainland – a place of massive contrasts and stunning beauty.
Long sandy beaches with seal covered reefs offshore, soaring sea cliffs, abundant birdlife and a population of about 130 people.
They say in these parts you get four seasons in a day as the great Atlantic weather systems sweep over the island. With nothing between here and Canada those weather systems bring fearsome and dramatic winter storms.
In summer the island enjoys more sunshine that any other part of Britain.
There is an award winning hotel, a general store selling everything you need, a little café, The Pantry, that is the hub of the community and a well stocked bookshop.
Together with the freshest oysters, prized honey from our native Black Bee and The Colonsay Brewery beers it all adds up to a great island experience.
