Travelling to Colonsay from Edinburgh or Glasgow, please consider a visit to our family hotels, ideally sited en route. The Best Western Crianlarich Hotel is a good choice from either city, and also has the associated Glen Bruar B&B which shares the same facilities. Anyone travelling from Glasgow has a choice of roads, and if they choose the Rest and be Thankful route they will find themselves passing Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, Inveraray Castle and one of the arches flanking the 18th century Inveraray Inn. If you are making a reservation at either hotel, do request the Islander Rate and mention Colonsay!
Primary means of access to the island is by ferry from Oban, which operates every day during the summer months and 4 times a week in the winter. See the Caledonian MacBrayne website for timetable information and ticket booking.
Flights to the island are offered once a week from Oban - see the Hebridean air services website for timetables and ticket booking.
Both our properties are located a few miles away from the main landing point of Scalasaig pier. As such, travel by car or other arrangements is advisable as there is no public transport.
