Welcome to Garvard Holiday Cottage on the Isle of Colonsay. Situated at the southern end of the island, this delightful farmhouse is set at the end of a half mile rough track and boasts fabulous views over the tidal Strand toward Oransay.
The cottage has a large sitting room with open fire and plenty of comfortable seating. There is also a spacious dining kitchen with antique dresser, table with eight chairs, a fridge/ freezer, electric oven, hob, a washing machine and dishwasher.
The cottage has a large garden with a low drystone wall and there is parking available.
Electricity is payable via a meter reading taken at the end of your stay.
The changeover day for the cottage is Sunday and we may offer reduced rates for short breaks at certain times of the year. Dogs are accepted by arrangement.
The Island has miles of pristine coastline and beaches which are home to grey seals, otters, dolphins and whales. Colonsay is also a birdwatchers paradise with choughs, corncrakes and golden eagles to look out for. The north of the island has wild goats and there are many ancient and ecclesiastical buildings, chapels and monuments dotting around the island.
The hills of the island are gentle and ideal for walkers/ cyclists of all abilities including children. Trout fishing can also be enjoyed.
Colonsay is served by a Caledonian MacBrayne car ferry service which sails from the Port of Oban every day from 29th March to 24th October and four times a week at other times of the year. The crossing takes 2.5 hours. There are also return flights to and from Oban every week on a Tuesday and Thursday.
