Back From the Isle of Canna

Really enjoyed my week on Canna. As soon as we got off the ferry we saw a Seal plus a Sea Eagle being mobbed by a Buzzard. Other wildlife we saw during the week included:

  • Otter
  • Golden Eagle
  • Basking Shark
  • Puffins
  • Dolphins (well, I would’ve seen them if I wasn’t feeling sick as a dog on the ferry trip back :( )
  • Here’s a little video I made of the wave crashing against the basalt rocks. The rocks there are much the same as the more famous Giants Causeway in Ireland.

    Canna

    I won’t be here for another week because I’m going away to stay on the Island of Canna, Scotland. Apparently it’s one of the best places to go for total peace and tranquility.

    Some facts about Canna:

    • There’s no roads (apart from Land Rover tracks)
    • There’s no mobile phone reception
    • Wildlife that can be seen on and around the island include: Dolphins, Basking Sharks, Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and Seals
    • The population is 15 and when they made a plea for 2 more families they had over 400 applicants from afar a field as Dubai and India.
    • The primary school consists of one child.

    I’ve now got to go and pack my suitcase :)
