About the island:
Sanda is a privately owned island of about 400 acres, situated 1½ miles off the southern tip of the Mull of Kintyre, made famous by Paul McCartney, who wrote a song by the same name as a tribute to the picturesque peninsula, where he had owned a home and recording studio since the late 1960s. A frequent rendezvous for warriors, saints and smugglers, the island has a rich and diverse history and has connections with the monks of Whithorn, Robert the Bruce and the powerful MacDonald Clan. Historically referred to as 'haaven’ – or harbor – the island boasts a safe anchorage during the summer months.
In recent years, this beautiful and picturesque Scottish island has enjoyed the diversification of a farm and holiday lettings, as well as the establisment of Scotland’s 4th official bird observatory. Sanda has a great varietyof birdlife,
with many migratory species being seen on the island. Maritime cliffs extend around much of the island. The cliff top areas are mainly either coastal grassland or heath. The waters around the island make for excellent sea fishing.
