Starting today and running for the next three weeks, The Colonsay Festival of Spring celebrates the arrival of warmer weather with a huge array of workshops, demonstrations, walks, quizzes and music.

The Colonsay Festival of Spring

All taking place on this hidden gem of a Hebridean island in Scotland, they showcase the very best the Isle has to offer and include activities such as foraging and cooking; stone carving; textile printing; baking and Gaelic folklore.

The more active can choose from ornithological walks; farming and conservation walks; historical and archaeological walks as well as plant identification walks.
