A' Chill

A' Chill was a village on Canna, in the Small Isles, Lochaber, Highland Council Area, Scotland. The name means "the cell", referring to a Culdee church, and is often anglicised as "Kil-" in many other Scottish names, e.g. Kilwinning.

Situated to the north west of Canna Harbour it was the main settlement until 1851 when the island was cleared. There are now only one or two houses near the original site.
