Colonsay is an island within the Inner Hebrides, Scotland which was the ancestral home of Clan Macfie. This island has a fertile interior and sandy beaches. The Strand which is a tidal causeway links it to Oronsay. Tourists visit the island and there are several cottages where they stay which are owned by Isle of Colonsay Estate which also manages the only hotel in that area known as The Colonsay Hotel.
The island is known for its bird life and a rare species of bees; the only native species of honeybees found in Britain (in Colonsay and Oronsay) which are preserved by order of the Scottish government to avoid cross-breeding and contracting diseases.
