Where should on the islands of Islay and Jura in Scotland? Also, how can I go to Colonsay?
The best connections to those islands is from Oban.
Rental Car or Plane?
If you take a rental car then check out the website of Caledonian MacBrayne Ltd Ferry transport. There are many informations available including timetables, prices and so on.
There is also a possibility to go there by plane. The company how operates there is Hebridean Air Service.
The main ferry terminal for Islay is Kennacraig, Kennacraig Ferry Terminal with several daily departures to Islay to either Port Ellen or Port Askaig. You can also travel from Oban (via Colonsay), but that's only twice a week at best and takes much longer.
