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.
