Can you contemplate coming here… to a remote and peaceful campsite, on a wild Hebridean island and with scenery so spectacular all you might want to do is sit and stare? You can? You should.
is on the Isle of Canna, an island in the Hebrides where vehicles are firmly declined and where wildlife is all around: expect to see feathered residents like golden eagles and sea eagles circling high up above the crags; puffins, razorbills, guilemots and more puffin' along on Canna's sheer cliffs, and dolphins and smaller whale species ducking about in the waters offshore.
All is gorgeously scenic too, including from the campsite where you can settle down for spectacular views over the coast, along with smashing sunsets, splendid stargazing and just contemplating life, the universe and everything from your island base.
is family run by folk who know how camping works: campfires and outdoor cooking are positively encouraged here, and dedicated firepits, barbecues and picnic tables are all available for guests' free use. (Don't bother carting the charcoal from the mainland; you can buy some on site from the Canna team.)
There's a proper flushing toilet on site, along with a washing-up area and drinking water in abundance. Showers are available at the Canna farm steadings, a ten-minute walk away and managed by the National Trust for Scotland.
The campsite's coffee shop, Canna Café, is at the harbour under ten minutes' walk away for drinks, snacks, evening meals and takeaway; the community shop sells a range of groceries, books and local crafts. Both have free wifi.
Cars are not allowed on the island, the campsite's owner can pick you up from the ferry port.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The island may only be 4.3 miles long by a mile wide, but you'll find enough to do around to keep you gloriously occupied for quite some time.
Nature first: the island is home to a wide variety of seabirds and other species, particularly around the north and west cliffs where most of the seabird colonies are spotted. If you keep your eyes very peeled, you might also spot basking sharks, dolphins, minke whales and orcas in the surrounding waters, and you could also spy some of the island's otter families as they make their way through the fields from the shore back to their holts.
Top bird species to see are puffins, shelducks, buzzards, wrens, eagles and merganser ducks; pick up a Canna Birds checklist at the community shop and sally forth to see what you can see, and keep an eye out for white-tailed sea eagles and golden eagles as they swoop and soar over the ocean. (Please take care not to disturb eagles during nesting season.)
Those who dig archaeology are sorted too, as the island has at least 1200 documented old sites. Its main ones are the Celtic cross, Sgorr nam Ban-Naomha (the nunnery) and the Viking’s Grave, but you'll spot heaps more along any walks you take. For an especially contemplative trip, hike along towards Tarbert (map essential) via the island souterrains to ponder on their original use.
Shopping sorts can pick up souvenirs, crafts and books at the community shop, or locally produced soaps, washes and artisan teas at the Hebridean Beauty Shop on the pier.
And did you know that the whole island a working farm? The Isle of Canna Farm is home to Blackface and Cheviot sheep and Highland and Beef Shorthorn cattle, all of which can be seen up close in the fields (just please remember not to disturb them at lambing and calving times).
