The Isle of Colonsay

Your Hebridean Island Adventure

Learn more about Colonsay

The picturesque and historic Island of Colonsay – and its smaller island neighbour Oronsay – is spectacularly located on the west coast of Scotland in the Atlantic Ocean, some 20 miles from the mainland.

All the information to book holiday accommodation on the Isle of Colonsay from the island's Tourism Marketing Group. 

The low-lying island is part of the Southern Hebrides and is easily reached from Oban by daily ferry or by plane. Oronsay is connected to Colonsay by a mile-wide tidal causeway.

Although the island pair measure just 10 miles by two miles, there is a surprising range of things to do, especially for outdoors and wildlife enthusiasts.
