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.

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.

Colonsay is located south of Mull and just north of Islay and at just eight miles long and three miles wide, its beautiful and varied landscape, dotted with mysterious standing stones, hill top forts and ruined chapels also boasts some of the best sandy beaches in the Hebrides, making it the perfect place to explore on holiday.

Colonsay can be reached by ferry from Oban and Islay or by air from Oban.  And our gorgeous holiday cottages on Colonsay can be found here.
