BYOB - Bring Your Own Boat

Many visitors bring a boat of their own. Certain holiday homes lend themselves to the purpose and it is possible to launch dinghies at The Strand, at Machrins and at Port Mor - but do remember that these are Atlantic waters and not to be under-estimated.

The harbour facilities are very limited and are subject to a fee, payable at the Pier Office (about £10.00 per four days or £31.50 per month to use the harbour). It is possible to launch quite easily at the main slipway, and to launch or recover using the more sheltered one within the harbour (£4.00 to cover both launch and recovery).

Facilities for visiting yachts are largely restricted to the close-boarding along the northwest section of the main pier - for which there is a charge (about £10.00 per four days up to 10m, about £15.00 over 10m). The slipway and harbour are entirely tidal and not normally a convenient option. For further information, please contact the harbour-master.

Scottish Land Fund Award

Colonsay Community Development Company (CCDC) is excited to be able to announce that they have been awarded £395,000 by the Scottish Land Fund towards the cost of land purchase in Scalasaig. This is for the development of much needed new community-led housing and business space. A substantial award from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) also helped towards the total sum required.
We owe a lot of thanks to The Highlands Small Community Housing Trust, HIE and MOWI for their help and support in getting us to this point. We would also like to acknowledge Colonsay Estate's commitment to our project.
