Hebridean perfection with holiday cottages on the Isle of Colonsay
As there are no towns or cities on Colonsay, its accommodations are mostly croft cottages and traditionally styled homes. Many of the holiday lettings on the island are close to one of Colonsay's wonderful beaches.
One of the world's smallest breweries on Colonsay
Colonsay is the world's smallest island with its own brewery. It produces three beers along with some seasonal specials, which you can buy from the island's general stores. Contact the store before arriving – they can arrange for a hamper of local produce to be waiting at your holiday accommodation.
Colonsay's beaches are among Scotland's best
Among the main attractions of Colonsay are its beaches. As the island is small and quiet, the chances are that you'll have the beach to yourself, whichever you choose to visit. Kiloran Beach, perhaps the best known, boasts white sands that are more Seychelles than Scotland. Kids will enjoy exploring the dunes and paddling, and there are also rockpools to explore. Even more remote, and accessed along a rough track, is the unspoilt beach at Balnahard – keep an eye out for the golden eagles that are sometimes spotted here.
Explore one of Scotland's most unusual gardens at Colonsay House
Scotland's west coast is warmed by the Gulf Stream. Therefore, the gardens at Colonsay House have a wider variety of plants and trees than you would ordinarily expect at this latitude. Follow the trails through the lush woodlands, enjoy the views out to sea, and don't miss the unusual Lighthouse Garden. With acres of gardens to explore, you may need a while to see everything – don't forget to factor in time to stop at the tea room and have a scone and hot drink.
