Another year, another beautiful October and another Connect with Colonsay; a multifarious, month-long extravaganza of arts, agriculture, history, food, felting…everything. With fantastic weather for the most part the festival’s array of guided walks and outdoor activities were a success and cosy evenings spent in the hotel saw good attendance. The wine & cheese tasting hosted by Donald Paterson and the whisky tasting hosted by Rachel MacNeill both had people desperate to get in (but certainly not so desperate to get out – singing continued into the smallest of hours). Such was the buzz that BBC camera crews descended to get in on the action. A treat for locals and visitors alike.
The festival dates for next year are Saturday 9th to Sunday 23rd October 2016
