 Fabulous cottage, we walked our socks off all week, so cosy and comfy, a home from home. Walter is a hidden gem, beautiful island to visit, we will be back as we think you have the best spot!

This island has the WOW factor with stunning views and beaches at almost every turn,the people on the island are very friendly especially our neighbour Walter, so helpful in the knowledge of Colonsay. The Strand and Oransay were the best, we are already planning our next visit.
