Accommodation Info

The Lodge is located on a peaceful and idyllic Inner Hebridean island to the south of Mull which boasts magnificent sandy beaches, ancient forests and beautiful lochs. The place is teeming with wildlife which includes dolphins, seals, otters and many rare species of bird. There are ancient standing stones and a 14th-century priory with exceptional carved Celtic tombstones, and the famous Colonsay House gardens and café are open to visitors to enjoy twice a week. We offer for hire mountain bikes to tour the area and tennis racquets to use on the free court. The pub, café, shop and village hall, where there are regular Ceilidhs, are all within three miles. Fresh lobster, crab and langoustines can be bought from the fishing boats in the harbour and don't forget the best oysters in the world are grown on Colonsay. The lodge is a refurbished former gamekeeper's house and bothies. It is centrally heated and has 3 large twin, 3 small twin and 1 family room. It has a huge dining/cooking/sitting area and a separate sitting room with a log fire. Bed linen provided.
