Canna hopes to grow population with new homes


Chairwoman Geraldine Mackinnon said: “The Isle of Canna Community may be small but we are always up for any challenge that will help us create a sustainable future for our island.​

“We have a positive track record with previous projects and hope everyone will come on board and help us make our community housing a reality.”

The National Trust for Scotland, which owns the island, is supporting the trust’s fundraising effort.

The trust’s Clea Warner said: “It is in our mutual interest to see a thriving community on Canna. 

“We are certain the approach taken here will lead to sustainable development that enables the island population to live in harmony with the precious natural beauty that surrounds them and to benefit from it through the opportunities that result.”

The Isle of Canna is part of the Small Isles archipelago in the Inner Hebrides. Other islands in the group are Eigg, Rum and Muck.

Reaching it involves a two-hour ferry journey from Mallaig on the west Highlands mainland.
