The Island of Canna is part of a group of islands called the Smaller Isles, comprising Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna. The sheltered harbor affords protection for yachtsman from severe storms and gale force winds.
The entire island is held inalienably, with all except the in-bye land (farmland) being designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its geographical and biological importance. The island has also been designated a Special Protection Area under the EU Birds Directive, for its large population of breeding sea birds, and is covered by the Small Isles National Scenic Area designation.
The island also boasts several scheduled ancient monuments, listed buildings and sites of historical and archaeological importance.
Canna was gifted to The National Trust for Scotland in 1981, by its then owner John Lorne Campbell and his wife, Margaret Fay Shaw. It is still run as a farm with a traditional Hebridean community, as John Campbell requested.
