The peaceful Isle of Carna
by Abi Purvis
Escape on a Staycaytion to the remote and private Isle of Carna. Enjoy the freedom, views, wildlife, and nature that spans across the 600 acres of land.
With only 3 houses on the island, only 2 of which are open for guests, the Isle of Carna offers a secluded and restful stay. There are no roads –the sea breeze, the shore, and the life of the island are the only sounds you will hear.
As it lies between the peninsula’s of Ardnamurchan and Morvern on the West of Scotland, the only way to get here is from Laga Bay.
Andy and his team will take you by boat, and settle you and your belongings into your accommodation before leaving you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity at the Isle of Carna.
Your Staycaytion accommodation
You’ll have a choice of 2 idyllic properties to Staycaytion in; Carna house or Carna Cottage.
The House, warmed with log fires and gas lighting, is a 1920’s house that sleeps up to 8 people. The shore at your doorstep offers endless panoramic views of the loch and the gentle coastline.
The Cottage sleeps 6 people within its comfortable walls. It is the ideal viewing spot of seals and otters who feed around the pontoon.
Whichever property you choose, the views and wildlife will be at your doorstep on this island of tranquillity.
Things to do
Let yourself unwind and embrace the fresh air as you embrace your wilder outdoorsy side during your stay.
When you are ready to step out of the cosy warmth of your accommodation, you will be free to explore the; heather moorlands, woodlands, wildflower meadows, hills, and coves, of the uninhabited island to your hearts content.
You don’t have to do it all by foot, bring your swimmers and try out some wild swimming, or explore the island by sea in a kayak, or even try your hand at diving or fishing!
Don’t forget to take advantage of the unpolluted skies: On clear nights you’ll be able to see the milky way, and if you’re lucky you might even glimpse the Northern Lights!
This peaceful Staycaytion escape is perfect for you, even during covid-times as your household bubble will all fit into one of the roomy properties.
If you need to work from your Staycaytion home, there is also WIFI available in both of the properties.
Or, with an extra 20% off for couples, if you fancy taking advantage of the romantic elements, you can make this Staycaytion retreat a memorable and romantic time for you and your partner.
