Reviewed September 17, 2013

We spent 2 nights on Canna and would have stayed longer if Tighard House had not been fully booked for the festival in August. Colin met us off the ferry with a warm welcome and delivered our rucksacks back to the ferry on the return journey; the weather was so good we preferred to walk. The food was excellent, the Goroghon Room was lovely with a beautiful view and every effort was made to ensure our stay was both comfortable and enjoyable. The island itself was our favourite of the Small Isles and although we didn't spot an eagle, we did see the last of the puffins before they returned to the sea. Canna House is well worth the visit and there are many superb walks. Altogether, a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The Goroghon Room was ideal for our needs with en-suite. The Sanday Room is bigger but offers simila...

I've just returned from a beautiful couple of days on Canna staying at the Tighard Guest House. Colin and David are very welcoming and the food is amazing! I stayed in Sanday room which has great views out over Sanday, Rum and Coll and Tiree in the distance. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

Was warmly greeted off the ferry by Colin and David and the short journey up to Tighard Guest House offers amazing views as set up in the hill overlooking the harbour. Beautiful house with a warm and welcoming feel, we stayed in Sanday room which offers views of the sea and such a peaceful haven, as no traffic on the Isle the only sounds are the birds. Sanday beach was a lovely surprise and a place to see the sea lions. Breakfasts was amazing with a vegetarian option and set us up for the rest of the day. Although we had outstanding meals for dinner, we understand that this service may change when the restaurant on the Island opens for evening meals. Colin and David were exceptional hosts, both knowledgable about the Island and ensured we had a trip to remember. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: The 2 rooms at the front of the house offer sea views

I know I'm being lazy, but it's late and I've just finished work! I endorse everything Martin W wrote in his review. We had the additional benefit of seeing a sea eagle being mobbed by a buzzard on the north cliffs. My wife's vegan and I'm vegetarian, but that was no problem for Colin, and our first dish for dinner was wild garlic soup! We were collected from, and delivered to the pier at the beginning and end of our too short two day visit. We thought we'd had the best view ever at Arisaig House, but the view from our room surpassed it by a significant margin.

Four days at this wonderful B&B on this wonderful island in May. Canna is a truly beautiful island, with dramatic scenery, terrific birds and other wildlife (we came the closest we are ever likely to come to golden eagles) and a true sense of peace and tranquillity. And, in the midst of it, Tighard Guesthouse, run by Colin and David, who have recently taken it over and have turned it into a haven of comfort, hospitality and good food. The house is situated on the hillside above the harbour on Canna, surrounded by woods which, when we visited, were full of bluebells and wild garlic. Three large, comfortable bedrooms, beautifully furnished and decorated, with a particular emphasis on 1930s art deco furniture and pictures. Fantastic breakfasts, featuring Canna’s free range eggs and a lot more besides. Tighard also provides delectable evening meals, with Colin producing the most amazing food (wine is also available if you want.) And there is such a hospitable atmosphere and a genuinely friendly welcome which you are given as a guest. Visiting Canna is a wonderful experience in itself, and to have Tighard as your base makes a visit to this island even more special. We could not recommend this guesthouse highly enough – thank you so much, Colin and David, for our stay; we’ll be back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: All three rooms are great!

I stayed at Tighard for three wonderful days and nights in early May. Colin and David are such great hosts, welcoming you at the pier and during your stay imparting, as appropriate, their great knowledge of the island, places to explore and where to walk - almost everywhere! The furniture, furnishings and artwork at Tighard are amazing for such an off-the-track location, while the rooms are all very comfortably furnished, with Highland produced bathroom items. I stayed in the main bedroom, Sanday, which was luxuriously appointed with fantastic views of both the sea and the islands. Colin's dinners, alone, are well worth the sea crossing and included spicy butternut squash soup, wild garlic tart, tender chicken on a herb rissotto base, home made Rum venison burgers with mushrooms poached in red wine, and a gorgeous white chocolate cheese cake, similar to one which he had baked the previous month for Prince Albert of Monaco and his party. If you are thinking of visiting, do book early!

Room Tip: I stayed in Sanday which is the best room for views!
