Café Canna is an award-winning little licensed café and restaurant on the shores of the remote and beautiful Hebridean Isle of Canna. We offer fresh, locally sourced seafood, game, and vegetarian options, as well as breakfast, lunch, and a fully stocked bar.

We're open throughout the day/evening in the Summer months (see opening hours).

Getting here


There are sailings every day except Tuesday and Thursday. It's a stunning trip from Mallaig, with regular wildlife sightings as well as views of Skye, the Cullins, and the other Small Isles (Muck, Eigg, Rum).

On Wednesdays and Saturdays there is a return service, offering the chance to visit Canna for the day.

By Sail / boat

Canna bay is one of the best and most sheltered in the vicinity. We have 10 visitor moorings (pay at the community shop), and holding is good on thick mud (although dig in well as there is some kelp). Which ever direction you're coming from - Outer Hebrides, Mull, Skye or mainland it's a fantastic and rewarding sail.

You can get us on Channel 8 to reserve your table (or if you need help).

Private charter

A number of private operators can help you get to Canna.
