The Moon rises over Gunna, between Coll and Tiree, and must have shone on someone there at one time. However, there are no written records of people having lived on the 168 acres that rise to 115'. There is evidence that an anchorite inhabited it once - with a spring and the remains of a small cell at Port na Cille [Port of the Chapel] on the south side and a cave that could have provided shelter on the north coast. In more recent times a CalMac vessel sails through the Sound of Gunna.
