Boasting stunning scenery, a temperate climate and a sheltered harbour, Canna is the most westerly of the Small Isles of the Inner Hebrides, and also one of the most hospitable.

Along with its smaller neighbour Sanday, Canna has been a site of continuous settlement for 9,000 years, with a small population of inhabitants remaining to this day. The two islands are now linked by a footbridge.

Known as ‘the garden of the Hebrides’, Canna has fertile soils, green meadows and abundant wildlife. It has been recognised as a bird sanctuary since 1938, and supports over 20,000 breeding seabirds, including puffins, razorbills and guillemots.

Canna House also contains an extensive and unrivalled Gaelic library, curated by previous owners, Dr John Lorne Campbell and his wife Margaret Fay Shaw.
Did you know?

In 2005/6 rats were eradicated from Canna after they caused devastation amongst the island’s seabird colonies during the 1990s.
