I've just spent a few days on Colonsay with friends - my first visit to this small island - and what weather! Glorious!
The small population were holding a three week spring festival and we took part in a guided walk to Oronsay which can only be reached at low tide (led by a local who was at Glasgow School of Art at the same time as me - small world), seaweed foraging, a talk with photographs and song about the past 100 years on the island, and a tour of the gardens of Colonsay House.
The woods were full of bluebells and wild garlic and the fields full of lambs and corncrakes.
This was our picnic spot, looking across to the island of Jura. (I walked over 17,000 steps that day!)
Do you like visiting islands? And have you a favourite that you visit again and again? It was clear that many visitors to Colonsay have been going all their lives and know each other well, meeting up as old friends each year.
