Enjoy a holiday in Scotland with a difference!

Our holiday home is on the Island of Carna in the middle of Loch Sunart in the Western Scottish Highlands, between the peninsula of Ardnamurchan to the north, and the remote hills of Morvern to the south. This beautiful island of 600 acres has a heather covered rocky peak of 550ft, with spectacular views stretching out over the neighbouring island of Oronsay, towards Mull and as far as Coll.
The sun setting over Coll is a sight not to be missed!

wild flowers

The meadows are filled with wild flowers, and there are many rocky inlets and beaches that are excellent for campfires or watching wildlife.

seals

A colony of common seals breed on the rocks of a small adjacent island. Herons, oystercatchers, terns, cormorants, eagles and sometimes, even sea eagles are some of the more spectacular birds that can be seen around Carna. Ravens, herons and buzzards nest on the island. Porpoises are frequently seen in the loch and otters in the channels around the island.

red deer


At dawn and dusk foxes and red deer are common sights. The Morvern hills are home to the pine marten, red squirrel and wildcats.

Our family has owned Carna since the 1870's. The crofters cottage was made into a family home in the 1920's. It has recently been refurbished to make a warm, well-equipped, homely base for trips on or off the island, or as a secluded retreat with a good supply of books and games for afternoons and evenings around the open fire.

As there is no electricity, there is no TV, no computer and no phone, so children have no excuse to stay indoors!
This also reinforces the peace, tranquillity and seclusion of Carna.

Step back in time for a holiday in Scotland with a difference. Carna is a wonderful experience for those with a mind to enjoy the more natural things around us and an atmosphere virtually unchanged for centuries.
