Covid 19 update. We are reopening on 26th April 2021 in line with Government guidelines. Self catering accommodation “will be restricted in line with rules on indoor gathering.”

We are pleased to announce that full week holidays have reverted to normal arrival on Saturday for summer 2021.

A Unique and Authentic Scottish Island Experience

There are many Scottish islands, but none quite like Carna. This historic 600 acre gem sits surrounded by the rich coastal waters of Loch Sunart on the west coast of Scotland. With only 3 houses, no roads or traffic noise pollution, no light pollution, no telephones or TV vying for your attention and few or no people it is the perfect place to escape the pressures of modern life and truly switch off. Ideal for reconnecting with the natural world, family, friends or just yourself.

Carna hosts a mosaic of different habitats and species of wildlife, many of them protected. Whether it’s Otters, Eagles, Butterflies or beautiful orchids the island is alive with biodiversity and every visitor helps contribute to looking after it as all our profits help fund our conservation projects and the sustainability of the local community. We are a small family run team made up of the islands’ owners, local businesses and local people and we would love to give you a warm Highland welcome here.

You can experience the island in several ways:

Holiday with us for a Self-catered Escape on your own secluded island!

Beat the winter blues and enjoy a “workation” living and working on Carna for a month long stay.

Visit for the day on most Saturdays.
