Isle of Canna is the westernmost of the Small Isles archipelago (Inner Hebrides, Scotland). Canna Island is 4,3 ml (7 km) long, 1 ml (1,6 km) wide and covers a total area of approx 1,130 ha (4,4 ml2). The population consists of just 19 inhabitants (2015 census).
- At low tide, Canna Island is linked to the neighbouring Isle of Sanday (by sandbanks and a road).
- Both isles (Canna and Sanday) were donated by John Lorne Campbell in 1981 to the NTS (National Trust for Scotland). Today they are operated as a farm / conservation area.
- Canna House is one of the two big houses on Isle of Canna (the other being Tighard). It contains important archives of Gaelic materials owned by John Campbell, that were donated along with the islands to the nation and since then NTS has engaged in original new initiatives in order to attract new visitors and residents to the island.
- A large natural harbour is shaped between Sanday and Canna. The pier on Isle of Canna and the ones of the other Small Isles, was enlarged and rebuilt in 2005. It is used by mv Lochnevis, Caledonian MacBrayne ferry, which connects Canna, and neighbouring Small Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum, to the mainland port of Mallaig (2h 30min away). Lochnevis is able to carry motor vehicles, though NTS permission is needed to land them.
- The harbour between Sanday and Canna is sheltered. It's the only deep harbour in Small Isles, and is popular with west coast yachting traffic from Oban and Arisaig.
- There are some twenty buildings on Sanday and Canna, including 3 churches, one of which deconsecrated. There is a post office that was converted from garden shed. Canna tea room closed in 2008 and reopened in 2010 as Gille Brighde Cafe & Restaurant.
