Colonsay Rugby Festival

Colonsay Excursions written in stencil

Getting there from Islay might be a minor challenge, but may be you can catch a lift with the Islay team I understand will be going? Many people will be aware of the annual Islay Beach Rugby tournament in June. In 2012 there will be more rugby (not on a beach, but close to one) on Islay's neighbour Colonsay:

I don't know more about it than you can read on the Colonsay Rugby Festival website I came across a few days ago. The most important piece of information is probably the date, the inaugural Colonsay Rugby Festival is scheduled to take place on 28/Jul/2012. It will be played on a ‘pitch’ on the west of the island, close to a beautiful beach:

I couldn't find a better picture of the ‘pitch’ among my pictures from Colonsay than the one above, although I think it gives a good impression of the area. The rugby action will take place just to the left of the picture, I should think quite a few will also enjoy the beach at Machrins beach on the right. Colonsay airfield (for those flying in from Oban) is just visible in the distance.

Still some time to go, if there are any further news I'll probably post an update. If not, all the best to anyone going/playing, I hope you'll have a great time!
