Our first time at Harbour in 11years of visiting Colonsay. Good place to stay, almost too close to civilisation by island standards! Beingh close to Hotel, Pantry and shop was good for a week of poor weather.
Perfect winter retreat, toasty warm, masses of hot water in the 5 bathrooms, wood burning stove in the sitting room, Rayburn in the kitchen. Really well equipped and extremely comfortable. Great Beds, lovely bed linen, downy duvets - best sleeps! Sea views towards Jura were ever changing. Sun rises over the paps were stunning. Love this house so much, we’ll be back!
We had a great time at the house, great location with beautiful views and a sheltered beach in which to swim just a 15 minute walk from the door. The house was really comfortable for 9 adults, the living room was cosy and the kitchen/diner had plenty of space.
I loved everything about the apartment. It is a cosy homely and comfortable place to stay and the location was great.
Perfect weather helped us have a most enjoyable family week in this well-located farmhouse. A nearby cockeril crowing from early morning and all day was a minor irritation but we enjoyed some eccentric golf on Colonsay's golfcourse. Our attempt to fish a local loch was a near disaster - difficult, possibly dangerous access and no oars for the boat spoiled the eventual one hour's fly fishing with nothing caught. The local shop was a great asset whist we thoroughly enjoyed some wonderfully fresh (ie still alive) crab. But above all Colonsay itself is a most beautiful and calming location
Colonsay is truly beautiful, quiet and unspoilt. Kiloran Cottage is so peaceful and remote yet right above the incredible Kiloran Bay. The bliss of no television is wonderful. During our most recent stay the weather was awful but we went prepared with books and jigsaws and still had the most relaxing holiday in years, walking the dogs on the beach every day in gales and rain! We will return to this cottage again and again I am sure.
Stunning views of sea, moorland and the nearby island of Jura. Recommend using the log fire on chilly evenings.
Over the past 40 years we have enjoyed several magical holidays with family and friends on Colonsay in cottages and The Colonsay hotel This winter visit was a Golden Wedding present from our family.. We were informed that there was a problem with the heating in The Nursery and would we mind moving to Drumclach. On arrival it was clear that Drumclach had been empty prior to our arrival. It was so very cold despite having heaters on at max over night. On investigation we found that Nursary was available and there was nothing wrong with the heating. The move was obviously for administrator'...more
The coal we purchased was almost impossible to ignite. I would have preferred to pay for heat and electricity in the bill. We have stayed all over the Scottish islands and mainland and have never had to search metres for readings.
Lovely little house, lots of character, clean rooms, great location between scalaiscaig and kiloran bay.
..................has been allowed to become shoddy, with poor kitchen utensils and a one armed bottle opener!!!!! I am told it will be upgraded during the Winter.
We had a lovely week at Garvard in all kinds of weather. The location is perfect for walks along the coast and over to Oronsay. The house is beautiful and comfortable and the view from the bath is sensational!
