Hi Sam thanks so much for the review of Highfield. It is great to hear that you fell in love with Colonsay, just the same as we did after our first holiday there in the 1970's....and not too much has changed on the island since!...More

About the neighborhood
The Isle of Colonsay is a small island paradise off the beautiful west coast of Scotland which is virtually unknown to the majority of even the UK population. The island is not widely advertised as it has a very limited supply of holiday accommodation and during the peak periods they are often booked up a year or more in advance, particularly as so many people return time and again to enjoy the unique beauty and tranquillity on offer. Our house is new to the rental market in 2012, having previously been lived in by island residents since it was built 8 years ago. Colonsay is 10 miles long and 2 miles wide and has many fantastic beaches. The island is also home to much wildlife, as mentioned at the top of this page, including thousand of sea birds perched on dramatic cliffs, colonies of ...
How to get there
Most people reach Colonsay by a wonderful 2.5 hour ferry journey from the town of Oban on the mainland of Scotland. The dramatic sea route takes you past many islands including Mull, Seil and Jura and once on the ferry your holiday really starts as you leave the mainland behind. The island can also be reached from a second ferry port called Kennacraig and by air and fast boat from near Oban. Bear in mind it is essential to bring a car with you, as although the total road mileage is quite small there is no regular public transport available on Colonsay. Further details on how to book ferries and flights can be obtained from the owners of the property.
