Overlooking the stunning gardens of the Colonsay House, the Drumclach apartment is an idyllic place to discover the Isle of Colonsay. Perfect for couples and year round romantic getaways, this stylish apartment situated in the centre of the island is a great location for relaxing and access to all of the activities, sights and attractions that the island has to offer. Whilst being an easy base to travel around from, it is also very quiet and would appeal to those who like the best of both worlds.
The top floor apartment is very well decorated and cosy, sleeping two people in a double room with stylish furnishings and plenty of extra space. The large window provides light and great views over the Colonsay House gardens. A beautifully presented en suite on the double room has a shower. The sitting/dining area has great seating, plenty of space and a unique open log fire, directly opposite this room is the kitchen, fully equipped for self-catering. A communal laundrette with washing machines and dryers is available to use free of charge and is just opposite the car park which has ample parking space.
Short breaks are available all year round in this apartment. All bed linen and towels are included in booking. Electricity and coal are paid for separately. Please note that pets are not allowed in this property.
The woodland gardens surrounding the apartment are considered to be one of the finest rhododendron gardens in Scotland. Planted mostly in the 1930’s with an exceptional variety of trees and shrubs including some exotic species, the woodland garden covers some 20 acres. Guests are more than welcome to have a wander around. The walled gardens in front of the house are not available to guests as the house remains a private residency.
