The island and its adjacent skerries are owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and are run as a farm and conservation area.
You can get to Canna by either the CalMac ferry from Mallaig (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday during the winter; Monday, Wednesday, Friday and twice on Saturday in the summer) or the seasonal Arisaig Marine service from Arisaig. During the summer, the Saturday sailings connect with trains to and from Fort William and Glasgow.
Vehicles are not permitted on the island. Canna is 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) long and 1.5 kilometres (0.9 mi) wide, and most easily explored on foot.
The National Trust for Scotland is the only provider of accommodation on the island.
