Hebrides

Canna

Thousands of years of human history share a Hebridean island with 20,000 breeding seabirds

Planning your visit

Canna House is currently closed, awaiting renovation works, but visitors can still enjoy the walled garden and the varied walks on the island.

Canna can be visited all year round – either by taking the regular passenger-only ferry, by private charter or, if you have your own boat, Canna Harbour has 10 yacht moorings for visitors.

It is advisable to pre-book accommodation if you intend to stay on the island. The community shop operates on a 24/7 honesty basis and carries a limited stock of basic essentials.

Dogs may visit but must be kept under strict control at all times as livestock may be roaming freely – the island is a working farm.

Landing charges applicable for commercial operators. Please contact traveltrade@nts.org.uk for more information.

Accessibility

  • It is possible, although challenging, for wheelchair users to take the ferry to Canna. 
  • Once on the island, the roads are made of hard gravel so assistance may be required.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We would love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what is good and where we need to do better.
