If you have not yet booked your festive break then don't delay. The Barn Bar will open up its table bookings to non residents at the end of October and we can't guarantee dinner without a reservation! Those regulars who have already reserved their 'usual' properties will have already received a copy of the Barn's Hogmanay menu.
For those who have not made up their minds - here it is. And don't forget we've live music from 9pm and a late license - with our usual pause for...
If you're worried about charging your EV whilst on holiday in Scotland you can rest easy as we've added two conveniently located charge points at Cologin for our guests and they're FREE to use!
We've installed them just behind the main stone byre so you can plug in overnight or simply give your battery a quick top up charge when you come back from your day's travels. The technical data is as follows:
We've installed a EV18-375b dual 7kW charge post which is suitable for most vehicles (excludes...
We’ve seen a big change in holiday booking patterns over the 25 years we’ve been welcoming guests to Cologin. In recent years the trend for shorter breaks has really taken off and is now an established vacation which has been adopted by families as well as couples, seniors and business visitors.

There’s a Scottish rain poem which most visitors to the west coast will come across at least once during their stay as it hangs in many pubs, guest houses and receptions across Argyll.
I know it as the Argyll Rain Poem and here it is:
It rained and rained and rained,
The average was well maintained:
And when our fields were simply bogs,
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour,

Another year over - we're now heading for our third decade at Cologin. Running a family business is always challenging but we both still love what we do and look forward to 2019 being another busy year. The winter refurbishment programme is already underway now that our Hogmanay guests are heading home and we're delighted to have received such great feedback from the many "Cologin virgins" who will hopefully be back again next December to bring in the bells with us and welcome 2020. One of the...
