This pretty cottage is located up a short track above the magnificent beach, Kiloran Bay. It has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and is ideal for 4 adults or 4 adults and 2 children. It is adjacent to Uragaig cottage. Please note that the kitchen and bathroom are small and the cottage is south facing and has only glimpses of Kiloran Bay.

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 eat together which was very special.
We will no doubt return.

Uragaig is a well equipped comfortable and characterful cottage in an amazing location! Walk 30 yards and you see one of the best beaches in the world. The cottage is lovely and beds are comfortable. Be aware though that the bathroom and kitchen are tiny and it would be a challenge to have 6 people in the living area on a rainy day.

You're a couple of hundred yards from one of Colonsay's most beautiful beaches, although you can't see the beach from the cottage. The cottage is clean but very snug particularly downstairs. It's advertised as accommodating six and whilst there's plenty of bedroom space six people together in the single small living/dining room would be very cosy.



Nice wee cottage, too expensive

Uragaig is a nice wee cottage, which superficially looks great. Nice simple decor, interesting pictures on the walls etc. Very good recently fitted kitchen and shower room with excellent shower.
Staying in the cottage in chilly early April though was cold. The downstairs bedroom feels damp and whole place feels like it needs more insulation. This would be tolerable had the cottage been reasonably priced. But it's expensive and there are eye watering fuel prices on top.
The heating is by electric panel heaters and an open fire (though this smoked when the wind was in a certain direction)
There is also the ladder staircase to consider. Tricky to negotiate with a cup of tea, or in the night when you are sleepy!
The location is great, right next to Kiloran Bay...a very beautiful beach. Though sadly there is no view to the beach from the house.

Totally fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Well provided with almost all required for a great holiday and comfortable stay.
Couple of minor suggestions (NOT complaints!). Most cottages provide a small starter pack of “essentials”; tea, coffee, salt etc. Have these been discontinued because of Covid? Kitchen equipment was great but a medium saucepan would have been useful (all very big or small).




Great location but .....

Fifth time staying here in 15 years. Love the cottage, the location and the remoteness. Fabulous walks all around. Took e bikes this year which we used a lot instead of the car. Cottage was in good condition as usual although the shower drain was blocked and I had to clear it first time of showering. We always take logs with us for the fire so always cosy. We will be back again no doubt.

The cottage was very well equipped and the owners had taken pains to furnish it most attractively. The staff in the office were very helpful and friendly and it was great to be able to use the facilities at the House - particularly the tumble driers.

The major drawback was the trees and high hedge obscuring the view. All the vegetation also made the cottage feel damp - indeed I think it was and the wall behind the double bed in the downstairs bedroom should be looked at.
