The Isle of Carna provides the ideal place to escape with family, friends or alone. This private Scottish island gives a chance to reconnect with yourself, others and our abundant native wildlife in peace and seclusion whilst supporting our conservation projects and the local community.

“Sadly our 2014 visit to the Isle of Carna will be the last time our children get to discover a new part of Scotland… from now on it will be Carna every time!” The Scrivenor Family, Perthshire, Scotland.

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. You can rent the entire secluded island virtually to yourself with one of our Self-catered 'Escape' holidays in our two homely and historic cottages, Carna House and Carna Cottage, from as little as £1200 a week with a self-drive boat included!

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 family run team made up of the islands’ owners, local businesses and local people and we would love to give you a warm Highland welcome here.
