Cairnholm is a fictional island located in Wales and the main setting of "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children". There are two settings of Cairnholm in the story, one which is Present-Day Cairnholm, and the Cairnholm Loop/Past.
Jacob learns of Cairnholm when he finds a letter to his deceased grandfather Abraham Portman from Miss Peregrine. Though he did not find a proper return address, Jacob did find a fading postmark reading "Cairnholm Is., Cymru, UK." Jacob figures that Cairnholm might have been the island where his grandfather lived as a boy, and that it was near Wales because Cymru means Wales and Is means that it was an Island. The town/village called Carinholm is exclaimed to be gloomy and bleak. As there are large ranges of green land also a fishing depot and harbor, patchwork of sheep fields, white washed cottages, enormous mountains, small grid filled with muddy streets, shrinking population, an old museum, and hotel called The Priest Hole. Sadly, Cairnholm isn't even a welsh name/word...more likely to be Scottish than Welsh!
