Colonsay is a gorgeous island and Kiloran is a jewel. Beautiful golden sands, blue waters, cows and sheep providing company. The beach is gently shelving and enclosed - good for families as long as you supervise accordingly - this is a remote island, no lifeguards...More

This beach is located at the end of the public road on northwest Colonsay. It is a must-visit and has tremendous views out to sea. Lovely white sand. Great place to go for a walk and just chill-out.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland, which is saying something! We never tire of Colonsay, and Kiloran Bay.

Going to Oronsay by car is very difficult and as it is a a RSPB reserve cars would be unlikely allowed . The track across to the island is very difficult and could be dangerous as the tide comes in very quickly
