Suggested itinerary:


Day 1: Arrive at Canna to be met by Isebail, the Canna Campsite manager,  who will transport your luggage. Isebail was born and bred on Canna so can help you discover the best of our island! Walk to your accommodation and relax into your new home for the next few days!  On your walk you can book a meal at Cafe Canna and browse at the Canna Community Shop (both award-winning!)  In the evening follow the Puffin Trail, starting below St Edwards Church and enjoy the sunset on your return walk.


Day 2: Start the day slowly with your Canna Kitchen homemade breakfast that we have prepared for you. Take a walk towards Tarbert, the Souterrains and the King of Norway’s grave with northern cliff views. Keep your eyes open for dolphins, seals and whales out to sea. Time to write a few postcards - drop in the postbox to ensure you get your Isle of Canna postmark! In the evening watch the sunset or visit Cafe Canna for drinks and their super local menu.


Day 3:Today is your last full day on Canna so time for a big walk! Will you take the Sanday or Canna circular path? Both walks will give you beautiful views with the chance to see seals, dolphins or basking sharks out to sea, eagles and seabirds skywards with sheep, cows, otters and rabbits inland! Visit Cafe Canna for a glass of “The Jack” our very own Canna beer and their local produce menu.


Day 4: Spend the morning packing up, checkout at 10am and leave your bags to be collected for the ferry. Take the opportunity to have a stroll past Tighard, follow Saturnino’s Path through the woodlands and descend to Canna Community Shop and Cafe Canna on your way to the ferry. Say goodbye to Canna for now and start planning your next visit!  We look forward to seeing you again soon!


Our peaceful Isle of Canna full of nature and wildlife looks forward to welcoming you!
