GIN LOVERS RETREAT

On Arrival

On arrival at Colonsay, you’ll be ready to immerse yourself in the remote Hebridean beauty of our island; untouched beaches, stunning scenery, rare wildlife, rocky shorelines and rugged cliffs. Intimate and unspoilt – nature at its finest. Then of course, there’s the gin. We have a collection of over 200 gins from around the world for you to choose from and, over the course of the weekend, we aim to help you try something new, revisit an old favourite or maybe even find a new one.

 

 

 

 

What's Included

• Full board for 4 people from Friday to Sunday.
• Breakfast and a buffet or picnic-style lunch on Saturday & Sunday, and dinner on Friday and Saturday. An early evening supper will be served on Sunday night prior to ferry departure.
• Two gin cocktail pre-dinner drinks per person on Friday night
• A pre-dinner, five gin tasting per person on Saturday night
• Any transport required – we would prefer if guests left their cars on the mainland so that they, not only save on the cost, but also help maintain the tranquillity of the island by not adding to the number of cars. We will pick you up at the ferry and transport you anywhere you want to go on the island.
• Ferry costs not included.

 

 

 

 

 

The Accommodation

We have two double rooms each with its own shower room. We are able to cater for four singles, but please contact us for details. There is a guest sitting room and dining room where there are facilities for tea and coffee, as well as music, TV, reading, jigsaws and board games.

To ensure we can offer our guests the freshest ingredients and to avoid any allergy issues, we ask them to select a set dinner menu, one for Friday and one for Saturday. We have a selection of house wine for guests to choose from.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggested Intinerary

In between sleeping, eating and gin tasting, there are a multitude of things to do, in both good weather and bad, far too many to do in one visit, so we have a suggested itinerary, but it’s very flexible, and we’ll do our best to accommodate our guests suggestions and preferences.
