    Additional amenities & feature info
    To maximise the 180 degree views to the Atlantic Ocean it is an 'upside-down' house. The master bedroom with en suite bathroom, living room and large fitted kitchen are all upstairs which means the spectacular views out to sea and over the island can be enjoyed from these rooms and from two balconies attached to the living room and kitchen. Being an upside down house, one couple can comfortably rent the upstairs accommodation as a 'studio' type home (at a discount outside of the summer high season) or if there are more in the group then we can open up the additional bedrooms needed downstairs and price according to the number of guests.

    Downstairs there are a further 4 bedrooms plus an additional living room which is perfect for kids to relax in and play games. In total th...

    How to get there
    Airport: Oban: 70.0 km
    Railway: Oban: 70.0 km
    Ferry: Oban: 70.0 km
    Most people reach Colonsay by a wonderful 2.5 hour ferry journey from the town of Oban on the mainland of Scotland. The dramatic sea route takes you past many islands including Mull, Seil and Jura and once on the ferry your holiday really starts as you leave the mainland behind. The island can also be reached from a second ferry port called Kennacraig and by air and fast boat from near Oban. Bear in mind it is essential to bring a car with you, as although the total road mileage is quite small there is no regular public transport available on Colonsay.

    Further details on how to book ferries and flights can be obtained from the owners of the property.

Amazing house with loads of space. Lovely and clean when we arrived and freshly made bread waiting in the kitchen for us. We had a few issues with the hot water - but I think this was because the weather was so good we found the house warm and turned everything off including the hot water! Colonsay is a wonderful... more

Highfield was exactly what we were looking for - peaceful, comfortable, and well located. There were only two of us so we only used the upstairs areas, but the house is perfect for larger groups. Every evening we could watch the sunset over the sea from the living room. In terms of mod cons, Highfield was very well equipped, with... more
