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.

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...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!
