We would advise everyone to take out holiday travel insurance irrespective of Covid 19. There is an opportunity to include travel insurance on the booking page. For more information about what is covered please follow this link to Booking Protect.

As part of the required precautions to safeguard guests and staff arrival and departure times for transfer to the Isle of Carna have changed. All arrivals are now back to normal for 2021, arriving Saturday. Carna House at 14.00 and Carna Cottage at 16.00. Departure will remain on Saturday, Carna House at 09.30 and Carna Cottage at 10.30. Please see your booking confirmation or contact us for more information.

We need the name and address of all guests staying on Carna and confirmation in writing (email) that no member of the party is displaying symptoms of Covid 19 prior to arrival or has been asked to isolate in the 14 days prior to arrival.

Books and games from both houses have been removed to allow deep cleaning of the properties so we advise guests to bring their own.

We ask guests to remove their own bedding and put it in the pink bags provided prior to departure. These bags go directly into the washing machine and greatly reduce the risk of infection for our staff.

We take our responsibility to both guests and staff very seriously. To protect ourselves, you our guests and our staff we have developed the following documents. Obviously information and advice may change so we will be updating and amending our guidance appropriately.

Please remember that you will need to wear a mask in shops in Scotland.
