Gart a' Gobhan cottage is on the west coast of the isle - a small, white rendered cottage with magnificent views of the setting sun. It is our dream-come-true, a very much loved family home. Downstairs has a large double bedroom, king size bed and views to sea and garden, bathroom with shower-over; separate toilet with washing machine and dryer. Kitchen/dining room is newly refurbished, with handbuilt wooden painted units and butler's sink. Fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave plus large oak table and 6 wooden chairs. We have recently built a restful sitting room with large --shaped sofa and two armchairs. A multi-fuel stove makes the room cosy even on the coldest of nights. This room has a huge glass wrap-around window giving panoramic views to the sea and sunsets. Up the steep stairs, a double bedroom with drawers and built-in wardrobe; small but very comfortable. Also a twin room with drawers and tiny wardrobe. Tel: 01258 453430 or 07770 827594

Old Baptist Manse Announcement
CCDC are pleased to be able to provide short term accommodation to a local family who need to bridge the gap between two tenancies. One of CCDC's main aims is to provide or assist in the provision of housing and we are delighted that bringing this asset into community ownership has allowed us to fulfill this aim.
In allocating residential use of the Old Manse, Colonsay Community Development Company adopts the policy of giving priority to those in need as a result of the housing shortage on the island; individuals who have made a commitment to making Colonsay their home. Consideration is given to the resources available to that family or individual, the urgency of their need, and assesses all details on a case by case basis.
CCDC intends to use this community asset later in the year in support of TSL Contractors Ltd throughout the Scalasaig affordable housing development, and to use the time concurrently to consult the community again with longer-term plans in mind. It is intended that work at the Old Manse itself will be undertaken by TSL during their time there, and this will enhance future possibilities for its use.
