Up a short track and watching over the picturesque Kiloran Bay, Uragaig cottage is one of two spectacularly placed houses on the Isle of Colonsay. The charming white stone cottage is the perfect base for a family or group holiday of exploring and activities. The interior of the house is welcoming and comfortable with ample space for six people and is located close to some of Colonsay’s famed sandy beaches and outdoor sports such as golf, sailing and surfing.
The house has a well presented interior and sleeps six people over three separate bedrooms consisting of a double bedroom on the ground floor and two twin bedrooms on the first floor up a steep set of stairs. The sitting/dining area is very spacious with an open fire and French doors opening out to views of the South of the island. The kitchen which has a built in dishwasher and bathroom with shower are snug but suited for purpose.
Changeover day throughout July and August is Friday. All bed linen and towels are included in booking. Electricity and coal are paid for separately. Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome at a small fee, this must be arranged before arrival. Short breaks of less than a week may be available during some periods, please enquire for more information.
For anyone building their holiday around the nature on the island, there is plenty to do. Local beaches and the Kiloran Bay make for a fun day out surfing or sailing and the range of beautiful Lochs in the area are great for fishing. Colonsay is the ideal place for a long nature walk or cycle over the gentle hills and single tracks. Boat tours and hire are also available.
