About this Holiday Cottage

Set in the dramatic surroundings of the Isle of Colonsay, Balerominmhor is a lovely stone built Victorian farmhouse offering comfortable and peaceful accommodation. Overlooking sea views toward the isles of Islay and Jura and located in the depths of the countryside at the end of a mile-long rough track, it is the perfect location for a relaxing family or group holiday. Only a short walk takes you to the stunning and secluded beach, Cable Bay making this accommodation fantastically unique. The island is home to a vast array of wildlife and fantastic natural landscapes so there is no end of things to see and do. For those who like history, the island is scattered with ruins and ancient hill top forts to explore.

The four bedrooms sleep ten people in total and are well presented. The bedrooms consist of a twin bedroom on the ground floor with access to a separate bathroom including a shower. On the first floor there is another bathroom, one double bedroom, a twin room and a large room with four single beds all of which offer full furnishings and exceptional comfort. Balerominmhor’s spacious living room includes a charismatic open fire for the cold nights and plenty of seating. There’s a large kitchen/dining area equipped with excellent facilities including a solid fuel stove/back boiler. There is also a cloakroom in the property.
