Kiloran Bay and Carnan Eoin

Kiloran Bay is Colonsay's most celebrated beach - and within easy reach of the road. This walk heads across the spectacularly yellowish sands - with the opportunity to explore caves unless the tide is high - before making a rougher climb up to the highest point on the island - a superb viewpoint.


Sandy beach, track and rough hill path.

Public Transport

None to start. A bicycle is perhaps the best means of transport on Colonsay. The beach can also be reached by walking along the Old Road from Scalasaig.


Parking / picnic area at southwest end of beach - NR397976. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
