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).

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.
