    Story

    Help the Isle of Sanday get its first ever road!!

    Canna and Sanday are two adjoining islands connected by a bridge that can take vehicles but there is no road on Sanday.
    We have already raised £17,200 towards the total cost of £31,428 for the road and just need your help to fund this last bit!

    Our project is to build a track across Sanday so islanders can get to and from their homes and businesses when the tide is in.
    When the tide is out vehicles can cross the bridge and use the extremely rocky and uneven track to the houses and school.
    When the tide is in, this track is blocked and travel is only possible by foot or quad bike.

    This will make a huge and immediate difference to the lives of everyone living there.
    It will enable islanders to travel freely by vehicle from the pier on Canna to home on Sanday, carrying basic supplies such as shopping, fuel for heating and for getting back and forth to work on Canna.
    Creating this track will be life-changing for residents of Sanday and vital to encourage new people to settle on the island.
    Funding so far: £9,000 from the National Trust for Scotland, £5000 MacIntosh Foundation, Campbell Fund £1000, Noble Caledonia £1000, Milligan Transport £250, John Morrison Plumbing & Heating Engineers £500, Northern Lighthouse Board £300, Bella Jane Boat Trips £150. Canna community and businesses will make cash and in kind donations.
    The track will stretch from the Canna bridge to St Edwards church, approximately 1.5 miles long and 3m wide and will use using locally sourced materials.
    Alongside the track we are going to create a trail to link sites of interest on Sanday together. These include the bridge itself, the shrine, machair and sand dunes, archeology, bird colonies, working croft lands, St Edwards Church and Sanday lighthouse.

      Invitation to the official opening of the Sanday Road!!! To celebrate the opening of the new Sanday Road we are having a short ceremony on Wednesday 1st August at 1.30pm. Sorry that it is such short notice but we need to fit it between boats on a Wednesday. It would be fantastic if you can make it to Canna for the day to help us mark the occasion. Thank you again for your kind donation. A huge thank you to Finlay Crawford for working such long hours and creating a lovely new road that fits perfectly into the landscape of Sanday!

      It's amazing how generous everyone has been! The main target of £31,428 has been reached with extra funding to pay for gates, fencing and any extra materials that are needed. We have now submitted the planning application for the Sanday track and work should begin in late September. So next time you visit Canna - we should have a brand new track across Sanday. Thanks again to everyone for your kindness and support! We also collected donations at the Canna Community Shop - here's Anna off to count the cash - a whopping £414 for our road!

      Just got my royalty cheque for The Man Who Gave Away His Island. John Lorne Campbell believed the best way to preserve Canna was to enable a community to live and work there. Donation on his behalf.
