It's Time to Start Your Adventure

Cycling around the island is the best way to enjoy the inland scenery and wildlife of Colonsay

Delivery of your bikes

Your bikes will be waiting for you at your accommodation, or we can deliver them to a specified location on the day of your choice. A helmet will be delivered with each bike

Where to go

A Colonsay Compendium is supplied at each holiday accomodation. Within this you'll find a map of the island, which has suggested routes for exploring Colonsay marked on it. Please DO NOT take our bikes over to Oronsay, or ride them on any of the beaches - salt and sand do not agree with bikes!

Kids bikes

Although we don't have any tag-alongs or child seats for hire, we are happy for you to bring your own, and attach them to our bikes. We have a limited number of children's bikes available, so it's best to book early to avoid disappointment

Returning your bikes

At the end of your holiday, all you need to do is either leave your bikes and helmets at your accommodation, or at a pre-arranged drop-off point

Where to go

Some suggestions for an enjoyable ride

  • 1 - 3 hrs: Ring road around the island

    This can take as long or as short as you decide! There are a few steep hills, so be prepared to push from time to time if you're not used to cycling!

  • 2 - 4 hrs: Round the island and up to Kiloran Bay

    Kiloran Bay is a stunning place to stop off for a swim to cool down!

  • 2 - 4 hrs: Round the island and down to The Strand

    Heading down to The Strand gives you a beautiful view over to Oronsay. Please note that we don't allow our bikes to be taken over to Oronsay - the salt water rusts them immediately!
