“One of the most tranquil, relaxing places I’ve ever been. Fantastic to have your own boat to adventure freely with, wonderful nature both in the water, on land and air. Accommodation fantastic, super comfortable, peaceful atmosphere.
Limited signal but WiFi available if desired.
Definitely be going back.”

A Unique and Authentic Scottish Island Experience

Ever want to Escape? Welcome to The Isle of Carna: Wildlife and 'Escape' Island

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. Loch Sunart and Carna Island are part of the Marine Protected Area and the UK’s only Mission Blue Hope Spot. Carna is an SSI, SAC. There is a lot to protect and by staying on the Isle of Carna you are helping and supporting this vital work.

With only 3 off-grid 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. Here you can be at one with nature.

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.

Learn about our Conservation Projects and how to Support Them.

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