A small cafe on one of Scotland's most remote islands is seeking new owners after it was put up for sale.

The eatery, which can be found on the tiny Hebridean Isle of Canna, has been put up for sale for just £20,000.

Popular for its menu – which features produce from the local area, including Canna rabbit, west coast salmon and fresh Canna-landed lobster – the restaurant has won several awards since its opening a few years ago and can be found on the island’s waterfront overlooking its harbour.

Described as a “unique business opportunity”, the leasehold includes the Alcohol Licence, the Branding Rights and a Commercial Van.

The tiny island, which lies off the Isle of Skye on Scotland’s west coast, has been run by the National Trust for Scotland since 1981 and shares a population of around 20 with the neighbouring island of Sanday – linked to Canna by a road and sandbanks at low tide.

The small 16 seater café was launched in 2014 by Chris Deplano who moved to the island with his wife Anna from Skye, is open throughout the summer season and offers evening meals, lunches and a selection of local ales and whiskies, as well as free wifi to guests – who can berth their boats and yachts in the nearby harbour – and residents alike.
