Holiday Rental House
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, no telephones, no TV or internet 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 House is a wonderful getaway, a period 1920s cottage with log fires and gas lighting. It is a warm and cosy cottage sleeping up to 8 guests in comfort and seclusion. Relax by the roaring fire and fall to sleep with nothing but the gentle sound of the sea and perhaps rutting stags. This is the perfect place for getting back to bas...There are many Scottish islands, but none quite like Carna.

It is a warm and cosy cottage sleeping up to 8 guests in comfort and seclusion. Relax by the roaring fire and fall to sleep with nothing but the gentle sound of the sea and perhaps rutting stags. This is the perfect place for getting back to basics and allowing quality time with friends and family that is in such short supply these days. The cottage consists of one double bedroom, two twins and one bunk room, kitchen with stove, dining room with fire, sitting room with log burner, two toilets and one bathroom plus a porch. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, cooker and all the equipment you should need. Outside there is a large mown garden with table, chairs and bench to sit and enjoy the views with the sea shore under a minute walk away. From you front door you are free to stroll where you like, perhaps up through the wildflower meadow, scale the summit or wander off round the deserted coastline maybe spotting an otter on the way.

We went with a group of friends. Three young families and a dog. We were expecting a peaceful break but the reality was so much more. On the first day or 2 I was craving a radio or some sort of background noise. The silence...More

We stayed in the house with our two young daughters, friends and their young children. Although I was a little nervous about the lack of electricity, the break from technology and the real world made this holiday all the more special. We stocked up on...More
