Canna Cottage is a 3 bedded bungalow in an elevated position on the North of the Isle of Barra, on clear days you see the inner Hebridean islands with Eriskay and Uist clearly in the distance. The house is a great base to discover the Islands beauty only 2.5 miles from our beach airport and the ferry terminal to Eriskay, Castlebay is a scenic 6 miles.
“Very well appointed property. I was staying overnight with a colleague for a work trip, but wish I could have stayed longer. Everything you need is available at the property, including a fully equipped kitchen. However, the real wow factor lies out the front room window, what a view. Who needs a tv, just sit back on the settee and soak in the view, stunning.”
Our Bungalow is on the east side of Barra 3 miles from Castlebay. It sits at the top of a Brae so commands beautiful views of the Sea of the Hebrides with Skye Eigg and Muck to be seen also the ferry coming and going to the mainland . It’s fenced off so peace of mind for dogs or children .Its very private . We have everything in it to make it a fantastic home for holidays with Internet included . What more could you want 😊 Saturday to Saturday is preferred but we can sometimes be more flexible 👍
“What a find! The house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and we arrived to fresh flowers too. The views out over the sea are to die for and we loved using the binoculars to keep our eye on the boats passing by! Barra is a wonderful island and this house is a brilliant place to stay to enjoy a holiday there. Catherine was helpful and all communications was quick and efficient.”
If you are looking for a simple seaside cottage with rustic charm, this may be the place for you.

Adventure is waiting for you.
“Anke-Beate's house is a delight. If you're expecting five-star luxury, don't book it, but if you want a really characterful place in a superb location then this is for you. It's clean and dry, not always warm but there are numerous oil-filled heaters and a coal fire to sort that out! The house is well stocked with everyday items you might need and bursting at the seams with information to help you enjoy your stay and really get to know Barra, which is a beautiful island - unspoilt thanks to its remote location and a joy to explore. The kitchen is well-equipped, including a dishwasher, a washing machine and an induction hob and there is plenty of hot water for showers. There is plenty of coal for a nice warming fire in the evening and a well-stocked book case for wet days (we didn't get any!). There are two toilets, which helps with bathroom-blocking in a larger group. The sea is within view and there is opportunity to spot wildlife, although we didn't see much during our stay, sadly. Anke-Beate is a great host, very communicative and quick to respond to the various questions we asked her before and during our trip. Thank you for a great stay!”
