Are you ready for the holiday of a lifetime?

Crumble Cottage is a holiday home available throughout the year for lettings, located on the Isle of Colonsay in the western isles of Scotland.

The cottage is a full restoration from a ruin that stood on the same site and was completed in the early 2000s. The cottage is furnished as a family home in a rustic, traditional style, designed to evoke feelings of warmth and nostalgia for times gone by.

Although outfitted traditionally, Crumble Cottage is fully equipped with modern features to ensure a comfortable stay — telephone, Internet connection and satellite television are all available for use.

Main features

  • Sleeps 4 (1 twin/double bedroom and one double sofa bed in living room)
  • Bathroom with power shower, sink and toilet
  • Kitchen with cooker/hob, countertop halogen oven, slow cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge/freezer and washing machine
  • Living room with multi fuel burning stove, telephone, satellite television and Internet connection (Wifi)
  • Fully fenced in garden with clothes line and a stunning sea view
  • Parking available for up to two vehicles

Colonsay is a peaceful and beautiful island particularly revered by those who are looking for refuge from the excesses and hectic pace of modern life. Although life on Colonsay proceeds at a more sedate pace than on the mainland, events are organised throughout the year for the benefit of everyone on the island.

We love animals and dogs are more than welcome to stay, but we request that you don't smoke in the cottage. Please feel free to browse the site to get a better impression of the cottage and location. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Crumble Cottage was a home from home for our 5 nights on Colonsay. We had everything that we needed and much more. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and made our catering very easy. The views from the house were far better than we anticipated and since the sun shone all was shown at its best. The fenced garden was a plus for our dogs. We were cosy without having to light the fire but, if we had wanted to, there was plenty of fuel. We were very impressed with Colonsay shop which had top quality and a great variety of products. Colonsay is extremely beautiful and peaceful. Thank you.

Tripadvisor review

Warm and comfortable house in a great location. All the expected cooking facilities but also all the little things (oil, tinfoil) you may forget to bring. Host was great all the way through and replied very quickly, and accommodated us when we had to change our plans last minute.

Martine (Airbnb review)

Crumble Cottage is as cosy as it sounds and is located on the small island of Colonsay. The cottage has a view of the sea in addition to everything you'd need for a delightful stay.
