The island of Canna is the most westerly of the Small Isles. At one time, hundreds of people lived there, but now it has a population of 14 under the ownership of the National Trust for Scotland. Despite that, it's a fascinating place archeologically and its cliffs offer fantastic opportunities for sea kayakers. Mark Stephen, Euan McIlwraith and Christopher Sleight take to the water - not without incident - and brave the elements. Plus, camping in the rain and the problem with rabbits.
