Like a writers' retreat for readers
It might be one of the smallest and most remote literary festivals there is, but the Colonsay Book Festival draws some excellent authors from across Scotland and beyond.
Alexander McCall-Smith, Val McDermid and Liz Lochead have appeared in previous years - and the festival is small enough to make things friendly and approachable. And you might even pick up a few things to read on the ferry back home.
