Our 2014 event kicks off on Thursday 11th September and continues through to the evening of Sunday 14th September, just in time for the ferry back to the mainland.

As we write (December 2013), the line-up for 2014 is beginning to take shape. As artists are confirmed, they will be announced in both the 'latest news' and 'line-up' tabs above. We hope to have the full 2014 line-up announced IN January.

Before you make a bee line for our beautiful wee Island however consider:

Accommodation

Ferries

Air Links


So there we have it. Easy peasy. For up-to-the-minute information, have a look at our 'Latest News' page. And if you have any questions or queries, then feel free to send an e-mail in the direction of either Keith or Donald. Please bear in mind however that time moves at a different pace here to where you live on that big land across the water...

STOP PRESS!!
With the advent of Road Equivalent Tariff (RET) now applying to ferry sailings to Colonsay, your visit to Colonsay will be cheaper than ever before – typically about half the price it was in 2012.

And if you like our logo (see below), you may be interested to know that it is the handiwork of local (well, Oronsay!) lad, Innes McDougall. You can see more of Innes' amazing art by consulting our dear friend Mr Google.
