Each month the Corncrake invites someone with Colonsay connections to give us an insight into who they are and why they’re here.
This month it’s community nurse Michelle Cameron

The diversity of the island and wildlife make it special to me

Yes – More visits from the Screen Machine

Share a special Colonsay memory with the Corncrake.

A special memory would be our first Colonsay Burn’s night!
If you were the absolute ruler of Colonsay what one law would you pass above all others?

Everyone would have to have a boat.
