A visit to Canna, the most westerly of the Small Isles, is a tonic for the soul. Approaching the island’s buttressed cliffs aboard the ferry, there’s a sense of the pressures of mainland life slowly releasing their grip. A small farming and crofting community still occupies this tiny island just 5 miles long and 1¼ miles wide, while archaeological evidence places people here as far back as the 5th millennium BC.
