A wonderful island full of wildlife, walks and superb beaches - and friendly people! If you want a quiet and beautiful holiday - where you can even manage with just a bike or two good feet, go to Colonsay!

The kitchen and sitting room are not big enough for 10 people. Best for 8. Some housekeeping issues. Lovely garden with amazing views. No WiFi.

We were very happy with Turnigil Apartment. We had a lovely view over the garden at one side and, at the other, looked across the roofs and chimney pots of the rest of the house. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire in the evening, not putting the television on once. The inner garden and also the woodland garden were beautiful and we can highly recommend the garden cafe. It was nice to be close enough to stroll down to the sands at Kiloran Bay in the evening, listening for the rasping noise of the corncrakes in the long grass. When we visited in early May the machair was covered in wild ...more

Colonsay is the most beautiful island in the Hebrides and ScAlasaig farmhouse is the best accommodation on the island.

This was our 10th holiday on Colonsay and our second year in Garvard. The location of Garvard is unique with stunning views across the Strand to the east with the Paps of Jura and Islay in the background and Oronsay to the south. Every morning we looked out to this view, we heard a cuckoo every day and saw barnacle geese feeding in the field in front of the house. Every evening we watched the sun's rays on the Paps then later the flash of the lighthouse on Islay. Each day we had a walk direct from the house and only used the car to visit the north of the island or Scalasaig for the shop or pos...more

A quiet corner of the fabulous Colonsay House. Very quiet and cosy wee space, yet amply big enough for the two of us for the week…..wish we had stayed for two! Will very likely go back in the future. The flat, the access , the courtyard, the parking and the location all just work and it’s a great base, especially for a small island.

We loved the location of the property with sea views overlooking Jura and the Paps. On a fine day the nearest beach is about a 20 minute walk, and there are several beautiful sandy bays easily accessible. We had a wonderful week walking on the island and I would recommend it highly to those who love walking and wildlife. We enjoyed a couple of meals in the hotel and particularly the local string band in the bar afterwards (on Saturdays). Gavin at Gavin's pantry also produces a wonderful seafood platter on a Wednesday evening. Our accommodation was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped an...more

Lovely, comfortable house, good bedding and furnishings. Kitchen well equipped. However it’s a bit of a squeeze for 12 adults in the kitchen. Ideally should have an additional shower on the first floor, or at least a shower screen. Top floor bedroom would benefit from more sockets or an extension lead, and a light near the mirror. Place mats or trivets would be useful for hot things on the dining table.

On arrival had to use half a pack of Detol wipes to clean coffee table and kitchen surfaces. The cottage needs a facelift. Seal in the bathroom needs replaced, sofa was grubby. Did not feel we got value for money especially given the 25% increase in rental price from 2020. Colonsay is a lovely island so definitely worth a visit but would not stay in Harbour cottage again.

The cottage was well located in the grounds of Colonsay House. The garden was a sun trap and we enjoyed watching the birds in the garden. The house was well equipped and comfy. Showers powerful and bed comfy. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Our fourth visit to Colonsay over 30 years. It doesn't change much and that is its charm. These two cottages are perfectly located to appreciate the full glory that is Kiloran Bay. Probably best rented as a pair, as we did but enough privacy to work if rented separately. Positives - Brilliant showers, effective heaters (our weather was mixed), cosy sofas around great fireplace. Negatives - lacking a few basic kitchen items such as a casserole dish and a large frying pan. The hob was very tempermental too. We loved these cottages. There were eight of us in our group and we all managed to ea...more

Heating expensive. No welcoming extras. Shabby entrance with door locking needing replaced. Only 3 pegs for hanging washing. Uninviting open fireplace. Understand property up for sale!!

The location of Kennels for me was wonderful as I loved walking on the beautiful garden trails and adored the walk to Killoran bay through the gardens and machair. The cottage was very comfortable with attractive decor and the kitchen facilities quite basic but provided everything one would need. An upgrade of the bathroom would probably enhance the overall experience.
