About CannaCanna is the most westerly of the four Small Isles and covers 3000 acres. Canna is 4.5 miles long and one mile wide at the most, and is connected to the small island of Sanday ('sand isle') to the south, itself about two miles long. It lies three miles north-west of Rum and nine miles south-west of Skye.
Canna Harbour is a sizeable natural anchorage formed by the main island and the close lying isle of Sanday. Canna is the only one of the Small Isles to possess a proper steamer pier and it receives calls by many different vessels. There is a ferry link with the other Small Isles, Rum, Eigg and Muck and a direct link to Mallaig on the mainland.
The islands changed hands until gifted to The National Trust for Scotland in 1981, who still own them: tel 01687 462466 for information.
