Colonsay Holidays

Colonsay is a tranquil, beautiful and remote island off the west coast of Scotland. Full of history and culture, perfect for walking and cycling, teeming with wildlife, covered in wildflowers, with award winning accommodation, food and drink. We also have an 18 hole golf course and wild trout fishing on the lochs. For families, it is a paradise. We often have 3 generations holidaying together and some families have been coming for decades! The island provides an endless array of outdoor activities. From rock pooling, shrimping and building sandcastles to flying a kite and investigating mysterious standing stones. Our single track roads are great for family cycling.
