Flying Visits

In addition to our excellent ferry service Colonsay has a splendid air-service operated by Hebridean Air Services, so there is plenty of scope for frequent and "impulse" visits to the island. It is quite possible to "mix-and-match" - perhaps fly out to Colonsay on Thursday afternoon, and return by ferry a few days later; or in fact choose almost any combination of days (just as long as you do not try to include Saturday as a day of travel). And of course we have a magnificent 500 metre tarmac runway, so private pilots are welcome (PPO).

Ideas for a short visit:

Perhaps book bicycles from Archie MacConnell (Tel. 01951 200355)


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.
