A visit to Jura is a must for those who seek a quiet place to relax and leave the world behind. It offers outstanding scenery, hiking opportunities, good food, fun pub. No public transportation so come via car ferry from Islay or as a passenger on the rib from Tayvallich. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the passenger ferry... More

Jura is very different from Islay, wilder and more remote with single track roads and steeper roads dropping down to the sea. Worth seeing the famed deer and the eagles soaring across the blue sky were spectacular.

Very few people around but everyone seemed pleased to see you and chatty. Just the one road. Loads of deer and other wildlife. Beautiful scenery but midges quite fierce! If you want peace and tranquillity its a great place to find it.

Last minute decision to go to Island Of Jura, and was not disappointed, had an excellent time, from Passenger Ferry, Hotel stay, Island Tour and Distillery Tour.

Totally stunning island, I visited for two days following 10 days on Islay, perfect place to just kick back and relax.. or you know.. climb the paps (I didn't do that... I did the relaxing bit instead!) Stayed at Corran House B&B which is like a secret place, recommended to me by Jura Hotel as they accept dogs by arrangement... More

Take the ferry across from Islay for the day. Best to have a car and you can then drive along the one-and-only road, past lovely scenery. Great distillery to visit, with a good shop. You are bound to see a range of wildlife, including Red deer and perhaps eagles. Lots of great bays to stop, enjoy the views and just... More

A lovely, peaceful island with 1 road. If you want peace, maybe visit the 1 distillery and do some walking it is perfect. It is the first time we have been but we will be back. A real gem.

Walkers - wildlife spotters - lovers and romantics will enjoy Jura and that is before you consider the local produce. Look, love, eat, dram and be merry!

Go by the Islay-Jura ferry, a 5 minute trip well worth it, Jura is teeming with wildlife and once you get your eye zeroed in you will be spotting Deer and birds of prey left right and center, the distillery and pub/restaurant/hotel on the island are great, you can take a picnic, beaches are narrow but long, there are areas...
