Colonsay Vacation Cottages, Isle of Colonsay, Argyll (Sleeps 1-6)

Colonsay Vacation Cottages are on one of the most beautiful islands in Scotland, the Isle of Colonsay. This pair of holiday cottages are the perfect places to stay, for those who are looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day living. Colonsay is a magical island with wonderful beaches and scenery; wildflowers, birds, woodland, ancient ruins and very friendly people.

Longfield House
Set on the west side of the island, this house enjoys wonderful views of Port Mor and the open Atlantic. With outstanding sea views and amazing sunsets, it also affords remarkable opportunities for the natural historian.

The house is perfect for family holidays and caters for all generations. Amenities and features include:

Ground floor double room with en suite facilities.
Upstairs double room.
Upstairs twin room.
Sitting room with satellite TV.
Wi-Fi internet access.

Cill a'Rubha Cottage
This lovely cottage faces directly across the ancient chapel site of “Cill a’Rubha” and enjoys magnificent panoramic views across the whole of Kiloran Bay, the Ross of Mull, Torran rocks and distant Dubh Hirteach lighthouse. It has been tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished.

Nestled in a beautiful part of Colonsay, it is on the north side of the island on a raised marine platform. The house has a wrap-around verandah, allowing guests to enjoy the breathtaking scenery in all weathers. Cottage amenities and features include:

Bed linen and towels are provided for your stay in both properties. We love animals and dogs are welcome, but we request that you don't allow your animals on the furniture and any hair is removed before departure.

The Isle of Colonsay is up to 3.5 km wide and about 16 km long, including the neighbouring island of Oronsay. It has excellent weather with low rainfall and long hours of sunshine; because it is surrounded by the sea there is a gentle breeze in summer which inhibits midges and other irritating insects. There are no snakes, but there are otters and the island is an important habitat for Grey Atlantic seals; you may even see dolphins, porpoises, Minke Whales or Basking Sharks. Colonsay has the largest colony of breeding seabirds in the Southern Hebrides, and its native flora is particularly diverse - many people come just to enjoy the carpets of flowers on the machair (lime-rich grassland bordering the sea).
