Isle of Canna
The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA is committed to supporting a multi-year plan of conservation work on the Isle of Canna. The Inner Hebridean island sits southwest of Skye and is home to an incredible diversity of wildlife, thousands of years of human history, and a globally renowned Gaelic archive filled with songs, stories, and folklore that might have been lost to history.
The National Trust for Scotland is preserving Canna House, where John Lorne Campbell and his American wife Margaret Fay Shaw assembled their celebrated collection of Scottish Gaelic culture. The Trust is also collaborating with the crofters who call Canna home to preserve the island’s wild beauty and make it a sustainable place for their families to live and grow.
