Built in 1750 as an inn for the local population and the rare visitor, the exterior of The Colonsay hotel in Scotland has remained largely unchanged. Perched on the hillside above the harbour, the hotel has commanding views over the sea to the neighbouring island of Jura.

Inside, The Colonsay retains much of its original charm and is relaxed and comfortable. With open fires, painted floorboards and deep sofas in the bar, log room, library or restaurant, there is always a perfect spot to relax in. The restaurant is more gastro-pub than formal dining and uses local produce wherever possible.

The hotel has nine comfortable bedrooms, each with its own unique style.

We provide free WiFi throughout the downstairs rooms in the hotel.

We are dog friendly and allow one well-behaved dog in one of our bedrooms by prior arrangement for a small charge.

We have a top of the range coffee machine and serve cappuccinos, lattes and espressos all day long.



"This cool, stylish hotel provides a luxurious nest and has a buzz of cheerfulness most of the day.  Staff show a level of personal commitment unusual in a hotel these days.  They treat you like a real person."



"We have been thrilled with the attention you have paid to us and for being made to feel at home.  The staff at your hotel are a real credit to the tourist industry.  Than you for making our stay a very,very remarkable one."

Mr and Mrs Goodall, April 2010
