Bed & Breakfast - 2 twin rooms, 1 double

Creag nan Ubhal is a modern house, on the north west coast of Colonsay, about 4 miles from the ferry terminal at Scalasaig. It has wonderful panoramic views across Uragaig towards the Ross of Mull, the Torran Rocks and Dubh Artach lighthouse. It is an excellent centre for walkers, ornithologists and botanists. Buzzards and harriers are frequently seen above the raised beach in front of the house. A short walk takes you to pebble beaches, with cliffs where kittiwake, gannets and razorbills can be found. Another five minute walk takes you to the magnificent Kiloran Bay, with its unbroken golden sands. Nearby Loch an Sgoltaire and Loch Fada are ideal for trout fishing.

The house has three letting rooms, two twin-bedded en suite rooms, and one double bedded room with a private bathroom. All rooms have views across the sea towards Mull, Iona, and Tiree. Each room has tea/coffee making facilities, colour television with Freeview, hairdryer and radio alarm clock. We also have a large guest lounge with a well stocked library, board games, television and DVDs for the occasional wet day. Free WiFi internet access is available.

There is a choice of continental or full Scottish breakfast which is served in the separate dining room. Packed lunches are available on request. Dogs are very welcome downstairs, but we cannot allow them in the bedrooms.

Colonsay Moorings Development

 
A Marine License Application for the 10 moorings due to go into Queen’s Bay was submitted to the Crown Estate in March. CCDC also submitted an application to Marine Scotland in late April. Both these applications have had a considerable amount of input from MOWI who are one of our key match-funders for this development. We hope to hear if our applications are successful in the next six to eight weeks. MOWI would like to see the moorings installed as soon as possible, but as you would expect, COVID-19 has impacted many of the administrative and physical processes required to see the 2 tonne anchor blocks put in place. Similarly, the Path Development has been delayed due to an inability to source materials. Our funder, Paths for All, are understanding of the situation and are willing to work with us on this. Colonsay Estate has agreed in principle to the path up to the church and we are working through the details with them.  
In the meantime, CCDC have been corresponding with other marine establishments, and are working on a management plan which incorporates an online booking system for the moorings.  
If anyone has any thoughts or questions about the moorings. Please contact Roz Jewell: rjewellccdc.ldo@gmail.com
