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 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 loca...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 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 social enterprise made up of the islands’ owners, local businesses and local people and we would love to give you a warm Highland welcome here. Carna Cottage is an original farmers ‘Blackhouse’ that has been modernized over the years to provide warm, comfortable and fully equipped self-catering accommodation overlooking the private pontoon and tranquil shoreline. The cottage conservatory and dining kitchen windows provide a wonderful and unique viewing platform from which to watch our abundant wildlife. Otters feed and fish on and around the pontoon in front on a daily basis whilst seals swim past heading through Caol Chàrna narrows to our right and both eagles often perch on ‘the bridge’ in full view. This cosy two bedroomed loch-side cottage, which sleeps a maximum of 6 people, has a wood burning stove in the lounge, electric lighting provided by the island generator, kitchen dining room with fridge freezer and cooker, family bathroom and conservatory. There is a unique freedom to explore on land and by boat this stunningly beautiful and secluded area, so free from light pollution the Milky Way lights up the sky on clear nights. More
