If you’re ready to let go of the hustle and bustle, then a remote island in Scotland might just be the answer you’re looking for.

The Isle of Canna is located just over 32 kilometres from Scotland and is owned by National Trust Scotland. It’s 6.9 kilometres long and only 1 kilometre wide. It forms part of a series of islands called the Inner Hebrides.

The owner also owns a guesthouse situated on the island and has advertised for new tenants to run the guesthouse.

So far, the Trust has received 100 formal applications from all over the world, since it started advertising the role in November, and is in the process of whittling down applications to a shortlist of 10 after the vacancy closed in December, reports Business Insider.

The Isle of Canna currently only has 15 residents and is only accessible by ferry, three times per week.

Those that have applied will be shortlisted and will also be warned that it’s more than just a job, it’s a lifestyle. Factors like extreme cold weather and isolation from other people are to be considered.
