It seems like it's normally the MV Hebridean Isles that sails from Oban to Colonsay (MV Isle of Mull in the wintertime).

It seems that it's most likely Hebridean Isles, as according to the Calmac listings she is supposed to be based in Kennacraig. However she is not, as Isle of Arran and the new Finlaggan are currently working out of Kennacraig.

It varies, I think, but whichever one it is, the facilities are more or less the same: a self-service cafeteria selling meals, snacks and drinks, a bar selling teas, coffees, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and a small shop selling newspapers, magazines and and a few books, maps and souvenirs.
